Amanda Drury pointed out this article predicting that evangelicalism is about to die. Where do I disagree with the man?
1. A clearly defined stream, the missional ones, have not hooked their train to political conservatism. Think Sojourners.
2. Those groups that have instilled the core values of Christianity in our children (like the more pietistic forms of Christianity) have raised children who will live Christian because they have it deep down regardless of what's going on in their heads.
3. The ancient future revitalization is also recovering an appreciation for symbol and sacrament. These powerful modes of interaction with God are more powerful than ideological wars.
Basically, what we might see die are the fundamentalist and Calvinist forms of evangelicalism, as well as those in Wesleyan and other circles who have mindlessly absorbed some of these trends.
