A Future for American Evangelicalism
Commitment, Openness, and Conversation
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Harold Heie is an admirable leader in advocating that evangelicals should combine their firm commitments with Christian virtues such as generosity, respect, and humility toward those who differ from them. That has been the premise of his valuable 'Respectful Conversations' website from which many of the insights in this book are drawn. Anyone who wants to know the state of the conversation about American evangelicalism will find this volume to be an excellent resource."
--George Marsden, Emeritus Professor of History, University of Notre Dame
"This stimulating and hopeful book features the best kind of respectful conversations among American evangelical believers. Harold Heie is convinced that actually communicating with others who hold slightly different--or very different--convictions about what evangelical Christianity should be creates the best path into the future. This book puts that conviction into practice. As it takes up issues that often divide evangelicals into angry sub-camps, the result is a welcome promotion of civility, balance, and humility--all of which reflect the Christian gospel in its most attractive form."
--Mark Noll, Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame
"On the subject of American evangelicalism, vapid generalizations abound. Harold Heie provides a much-needed alternative. Both longtime students of the subject and relative newcomers will profit from this model of respectful (but far from bland) conversation."
--John Wilson, Editor, Books & Culture
