Tony Campolo speaks his mind on women preachers, gay Christians, Islam, Creation Science, Environmental Responsibility and Political Parties. And suddenly, every assumption you ever made about Evangelicals is out of the window!

With his trademark shoot-from-the-heart style, Tony Campolo shatters the stereotype of evangelical Christians as a monolithic mass of social conservatives. In SPEAKING MY MIND, this prolific author and university professor takes issue with the public image of evangelicals as right-wing hardliners and claims a place at the table for socially liberal viewpoints.

Experience has taught Campolo the heard lesson that by challenging the conservative agenda, he risks condemnation by brothers and sisters in Christ who disagree with him. It's a chance he's willing to take in order to speak the truth in love, insisting that God is a God of compassion, who accepts and loves us as we are - in all our diversity.

Depending on your point of view, Campolo's prophetic look at the evangelical movement will either fill you with hope or scare you to death.

Fifteen years ago, Tony Campolo's 20 Hot Potatoes That Christians Are Afraid to Touch pushed, pulled, and prodded Christians into serious consideration of controversial but critical issues related to the Christian life. Campolo challenged his more than 150,000 readers to re-think their convictions (and prejudices) and to do something about them ^Dubbed by Christianity Today as "the positive prophet" and "a ferocious critic of Christians left and right," Campolo lives up to his reputation in this latest book examining some of today's toughest questions and issues: Is evangelical Christianity anti-feminist? Is our affluent lifestyle at odds with our faith? Is America really in moral decline? Is Islam really an evil religion? Should Christian parents pull their kids out of public schools? Was the war with Iraq a "just" war? ^Speaking My Mind x2026;Tony Campolo at his best.

Speaking My Mind represents one of the biggest risks of Tony Campolo's ministry. It's a courageous book by a godly man who deeply loves his fellow Christians but sees today's evangelical movement as dangerously one-sided. In everything from policies to politics to talk radio, the voice of evangelical Christianity is the voice of social conservatism. sDo evangelicals have an image problem? What's happening to their theology? How well do they relate to the rest of the world? What does the future hold for them? The closer some Christian leaders come to these questions, the fuzzier they get on expressing their true beliefs. But Campolo approaches them sharply focused and refreshingly steadfast. Campolo insists that there are committed Christians on both sides of the issues and that politically liberal viewpoints deserve to be heard: men and women can be evangelicals and still support environmental protection, oppose war, and advocate for the poor. Yet he's quick to admit he doesn't have all the answers, just the unshakable conviction of a struggling Christian trying to find out what is right and wrong within the community of believers he loves.
