Once upon a time, evangelicalism was a countercultural upstart movement. Positioned between mainline denominational liberalism and reactionary fundamentalism, evangelicals saw themselves as evangelists to all. Billy Graham was reaching the masses with his Crusades, Francis Schaeffer was reaching artists and university students at L'Abri, Larry Norman was recording Jesus music on secular record labels and touring with Janis Joplin and the Doors, and Carl Henry was reaching the intellectuals through Christianity Today. It was the dawn of 'classic evangelicalism.'
Surveying the current evangelical landscape, however, one can feel we're backpedalling quickly. We are more theologically diffuse, culturally gun-shy and fragmented than ever before. What happened? How do we find our way back?
Using the life and work of Carl Henry as a key to evangelicalism's past and a cipher for its future, this book provides crucial insights for a renewed vision of the church's place in modern society and charts a course toward unity under the banner of 'classic evangelicalism.'
