Who Are the Evangelicals?
This study explains the contemporary evangelical movement, both by tracing ^its historical roots and by exploring its major doctrinal concerns. The ^book looks at what distinguishes evangelicals from other Christians, ^explains what unifies evangelicals and draws attention to their diversity.^Special consideration is given to issues such as the Bible, salvation, ^conversion, world mission, social concern, heaven and hell, and ecumenism. ^It also highlights the dangers of recent success in the light of the ^growth and prominence given to evangelicalism, and presents evangelicals ^with a challenge to remain true to their heritage. The book should provoke ^interest among non-Christians and non-evangelicals curious about the ^contemporary evangelical Church and its teachings. It is also suitable for ^theological students, pastors and lay readers within the evangelical ^Church.
