Is the American evangelical house in order? Or is it in need of a remodel? Or—even worse—should we sell the house altogether and look for another home?
In Hope for American Evangelicals, professor and former missionary Matthew Bennett inspects the American evangelical home. Perhaps, like him, you love evangelical doctrine, love the community in which you’ve been spiritually nurtured, and want to see it again become a thriving, hospitable environment for guests. But perhaps, also like Bennett, you think the home needs some touching up before this can be true.
In this book, with insights from Lesslie Newbigin, Bennett helps readers inspect the American evangelical house through the eyes of a missionary. As you join him on the tour, you’ll learn about:
- American evangelicalism’s neighborhood: how we can contextualize the gospel in our communities
- Our dining room: ethnic diversity as proof of the gospel’s truth
- Our living room: the connection between our theology and the actual lives we live
- Our bedroom: sexual idolatry in the church
- Our yard: the difference between a manicured ministry and a missional ministry
- Our address: the relationship between our heavenly citizenship and our national citizenship
