Free Book: The Real Scandal of the Evangelical Mind

“Is there an evangelical mind active today? Nearly two decades ago Mark Noll concluded any evangelical mind had gone soft through lack of use. Today the question is whether a healthy evangelicalism exists to host such a mind. I am not sure, theologically, that such a thing still thrives.”

The Real Scandal of the Evangelical Mind book coverThat’s how Carl Trueman starts this month’s free book, The Real Scandal of the Evangelical Mind.

Trueman argues that today “religious beliefs are more scandalous than they have been for many years”—but for different reasons than Noll foresaw. In fact, the real problem now is exactly the opposite of what Noll diagnosed: evangelicals don’t lack a mind but rather an agreed-upon evangel. Although known as gospel people, evangelicals no longer share any consensus on the gospel’s meaning.

Readers will come away from the book’s three chapters (“Losing Our Religion,” “Exclusion and the Evangelical Mind,” and “The Real Scandal of the Evangelical Mind”) with much food for thought.
