Politics and Evangelical Theology

The discussion on the “Future of Evangelicalism” continues over at respectfulconversation.net . This might be one of the best-kept secrets in online theological discussion these days. And I think this month’s set of contributions, on “evangelicals and politics,” with contributions from Amos Yong, Randall Balmer, Amy Black, Jeannine Brown, and others, is one of the best so far. I added my response post today, called “Too Narrowly Political, and Not Political Enough,” which you can read here.

The question of the relation between Christianity and politics (and Christianity and culture, Christianity and social issues, etc.) is, to me, one of the most vexing challenges to the identity and activity of the church. I see it now as being far more important than I used to. This seems to be the case with many evangelical Christians and is part of the reason so many are calling for a deeper political theology to guide the church into the future.
