New book: “A Lover’s Quarrel with the Evangelical Church”

I’ve been blogging about the evangelical church recently. Here’s a related post.

Tim Challies recently commented on the new book (see his post here): A Lover’s Quarrel with the Evangelical Church.  It might be a good book we should pay more attention to because it offers constructive criticism and advice for those who have been disenchanted with the evangelical church. Challies states:

This book comes from a man who has been an insider, an evangelical, for several decades. And it comes from a man who loves the church, not one who wants to phase it out or move on to the next thing. He spends the bulk of this book diagnosing problems within evangelicalism saying that once we are able to name a problem, we are equipped to deal with it. He begins by dismantling evangelical myths (bigger is better, being the foremost of these) and then turns to his description of The New Provincialism. This is a term he coined to describe evangelicalism’s obsession with now at the expense of the past and the future.
