Four Views on the Spectrum of Evangelicalism

--by Greg Strand, EFCA Director of Biblical Theology and Credentialing

Commenting on: Andrew David Naselli and Collin Hansen, ed., Four Views on The Spectrum of Evangelicalism, Counterpoints: Bible and Theology (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2011).

It is described in the following way:

Four Views on the Spectrum of Evangelicalism compares and contrasts four distinct positions on the current fundamentalist-evangelical spectrum in light of the history of American fundamentalism and evangelicalism. The contributors each state their case for one of four views on the spectrum of evangelicalism: -Kevin T. Bauder: Fundamentalism -R. Albert Mohler Jr.: Conservative/confessional evangelicalism -John G. Stackhouse Jr.: Generic evangelicalism -Roger E. Olson: Postconservative evangelicalism. Each author explains his position, which is critiqued by the other three authors. The interactive and fair-minded nature of the Counterpoints format allows the reader to consider the strengths and weaknesses of each view and draw informed, personal conclusions.
