Stanley Hauerwas on “An Evangelical Social Gospel?”

An Evangelical Social Gospel? is a joy to read because Suttle is so deadly serious about matters that matter. The book is filled with delightful surprises not the least being the recovery of Walter Rauschenbusch to challenge the individualism of evangelical Christianity. But this book is more than critique it is a wonderful imaginative attempt to develop a folk theology that is faithful to the gospel.”

– Stanley Hauerwas, Duke University
