Evangelicalism at the Crossroads

Over the past 10 to 20 years the evangelical movement has gained increasing attention, especially in the political realm. During the third in a series of conversations seeking to assess and critique the state of Evangelicalism, Dr. Dennis Hollinger, president and professor of Christian Ethics at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and Dr. Stan D. Gaede, Scholar in Residence at Gordon’s Center for Christian Studies, discussed Evangelicalism’s place in American history as well as its future.
“What accounts for this moment in the history of American Evangelicalism?” asked Dr. Gaede. “Evangelicals are getting a great deal of publicity these days, especially in this year’s election, where they are viewed as a political force candidates have to consider. In some ways that’s understandable. But why now, in particular? And what are the likely consequences for the evangelical movement in the days to come?”
The conversation took place on Friday, October 24 in the Ken Olsen Science Center.
