Book Review

Three Books

Factions, Ignorance, and Issues

It’s easy to blame revivalism and the “Second Great Awakening” for many of the problems in evangelical and even fundamental Christianity. The movements took us into anti-intellectualism and radical individualism. They turned us into something other than confessional...

Two Books for Elder Training
