Future of Faith in America: Evangelicalism
Evangelicalism has rich roots in American history, but many have questioned the vitality of its future. While the Pew data caused many to wring their hands over the future of the Evangelical communities in America, the religious landscape also kindles a great deal of hope. What do the data really say? Where do Evangelicals see real opportunities? What are the challenges that jeopardize growth?
These essays address a wide variety of themes and are loosely grouped around issues of wisely reading the data, of focusing in hope on multiethnic growth and Millennials, of learning from the past and returning to roots, and of a renewed calling to mission.
This topic is part of our summer symposium on the Future of Faith in America. For more resources visit our Future of Faith main page.
