When I get a chance (on a train mostly) I’m reading this book.
Transforming the World?: the Gospel and Social Responsibility, edited by Dewi Hughes and Jamie Grant.
It has an impressive list of contributors, mostly but not exclusively within the UK.
I’m trying to prepare a series of 10 guest posts or so for Jesus Creed in June.
Rather than replicate what will come there (discussion of 9-10 chapters or so), I thought I’d post a few quotable quotes to give a flavour of a thought-provoking series of essays in what is a very good and important book.
What do you think of this pretty bold statement opening line?
Evangelical Christianity has long been plagued by a dichotomy. In the last century liberals reduced the mission of God to social action and in response evangelicals reduced it to making individual converts by proclaiming the ‘gospel’. This was a case, common in the history of theology, of a bad argument being countered by an equally bad one.
