Evangelicals Then and Now

Peter Jeffery

Evangelicals Then and Now

Peter Jeffery

$15.99

Paperback
In surveying the past forty years of evangelism Peter Jeffery does not look back with the warm glow of nostalgia, but takes a long hard look at today's evangelical church. In a society where nothing is right or wrong and anything is tolerated apart from a biblical faith, those who believe the Bible are viewed as bigoted, ignorant and lacking in love. The church has almost ceased to have any influence over public morality and is often viewed with derision.

How do Christians react? They either retreat into a holy huddle and complain that things are not as they used to be or try to show the world that they are not really so different after all. The gospel has been toned down to make it more user-friendly and evangelicalism has lost its urgency and relevance.

Peter Jeffery takes a careful look at many aspects of church life including worship, Bible versions, preaching and leadership. He asks 'Where do we go from here?' and stresses the need for a greater vision of God's greatness, a deeper conviction of sin and of the authority of Scripture and a deeper awareness of the condition of the lost. Revival has to begin first among the people of God and not the spiritually dead. This book is a wake-up call to all who love and care deeply about their priceless possession. From Evangelical Press.
