Rarely has a book in modern times so thoroughly examined the teachings of Evangelical Protestantism as does The Evangelical Dilemma. The authors write from a supportive perspective, but with a directness that every Evangelical will recognize. Beleaguered on every side by changing world expectations, by the inroads of the Ecumenical movement, by the tantalizing enigma of the Charismatic movement, and by the uncertainty of pluralism, there has never been a more urgent time for an honest review of the past, present, and the future of Evangelical Protestantism.
Historically riveted upon the 16th Century Reformation, Evangelicalism has begun to flounder after almost a half millennium of existence. Has it lost its way? Where is its direction for the future? Will it ever make the earth-shattering impact that was promised by the Reformers? Colin and Russell Standish go right to the heart of the issue. Is Evangelicalism today truly Sola Scriptura? Does it teach that the Bible and the Bible only is our basis of faith and practice? Does it still teach the priesthood of all believers?
The authors leave no stone upturned to not only expose the dilemma of modern-day Evangelicalism, but also to offer clear biblical solutions to the dilemma. This is a must-read book for Evangelical clergy and laity.
