CARL R. TRUEMAN studied at the Universities of Cambridge and Aberdeen ^in the United Kingdom. Prior to emigrating to the United States, he was on Faculty ^at the University of Nottingham and King's College, University of Aberdeen. He ^is currently Vice President for Academic Affairs and Professor of Historical Theology ^and Church History at Westminster Theological Seminary (PA). His scholarly publications ^focus on the development Reformed Orthodoxy in sixteenth and seventeenth century ^Britain. He is also a Council Member of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals ^and an ordained minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. His latest books ^are Republocrat: Confessions of a Liberal Conservative (Presbyterian and ^Reformed) and ,Histories and Fallacies: Problems Faced in the Writing of History ^(Crossway).


What is an evangelical . . . and has he lost his mind? Carl Trueman ^wrestles with those two provocative questions and concludes that modern evangelicals ^emphasize experience and activism at the expense of theology. Their minds go fuzzy ^as they downplay doctrine. The result is "a world in which everyone from Joel Osteen ^to Brian McLaren to John MacArthur may be called an evangelical."

Fifteen ^years ago in The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind, historian Mark Noll warned ^that evangelical Christians had abandoned the intellectual aspects of their faith. ^Christians were neither prepared nor inclined to enter the intellectual debate, ^and had become marginalized. Today Trueman argues, "Religious beliefs are more scandalous ^than they have been for many years"-but for different reasons than Noll foresaw. ^In fact, the real problem now is exactly the opposite of what Noll diagnosed―evangelicals ^don't lack a mind, but rather an agreed upon evangel. Although known as gospel people, ^evangelicals no longer share any consensus on the gospel's meaning.

Provocative ^and persuasive, Trueman's indictment of evangelicalism also suggests a better way ^forward for those theologically conservative Protestants once and formerly known ^as evangelicals.

Fifteen years ago in The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind, historian Mark Noll warned that evangelical Christians had abandoned the intellectual aspects of their faith. Christians were neither prepared nor inclined to enter into intellectual debates, and had become culturally marginalized. Trueman argues that today "religious beliefs are more scandalous than they have been for many years"-but for different reasons than Noll foresaw. In fact, the real problem now is exactly the opposite of what Noll diagnosed: evangelicals don't lack a mind, but rather an agreed upon evangel. Although known as gospel people, evangelicals no longer share any consensus on the gospel's meaning.

Provocative and persuasive, Trueman's indictment of evangelicalism also suggests a better way forward for those theologically conservative Protestants famously known as evangelicals.
