Evangelicalism Divided: A Record of Crucial Change in the Years 1950-2000by Iain Murray
Please check back soon to purchase this item.
Evangelicalism Divided traces the fascinating saga of the personalities, from 1950 to the present, involved in shaping what we call evangelicalism today. Iain Murray’s account is not simply a black and white narrative, but using the mass of sources now available he shows how a new policy of cooperation without compromise actually resulted in concessions which seriously weakened biblical Christianity. The first and greatest need, he argues, is to answer the most fundamental and divisive question of all: What is a Christian?
Dr. R.C. Sproul highly recommends that all Christians read and re-read Dr. Murray’s book with the hope that as we understand the reasons for the divisions within evangelicalism, it will serve as a wake-up call to the church to fight against the tendency to accommodate the culture at large.
“In the internet age the gap between history and journalism isn’t measured by time passing, but by the wisdom of the teller. This modern recounting of the last fifty years of western church history is told by a witness of that history. More than merely telling us when and how the evangelical church lost its mooring, Murray tells us why, and so warns us about what lies ahead.”
