Once upon a time, evangelicalism was a countercultural upstart
movement. Positioned in between mainline denominational liberalism
and reactionary fundamentalism, evangelicals saw themselves as
evangelists to all of culture. Billy Graham was reaching the masses
with his Crusades, Francis Schaeffer was reaching artists and
university students at L'Abri, Larry Norman was recording Jesus
music on secular record labels and touring with Janis Joplin and
the Doors, and Carl F. H. Henry was reaching the intellectuals
through Christianity Today. It was the dawn of "classic
evangelicalism." Surveying the current evangelical landscape,
however, one gets the feeling that we're backpedaling quickly. We
are more theologically diffuse, culturally gun-shy, and fragmented
than ever before. What has happened? And how do we find our way
back? Using the life and work of Carl F. H. Henry as a key to
evangelicalism's past and a cipher for its future, this book
provides crucial insights for a renewed vision of the church's
place in modern society and charts a refreshing course toward unity
under the banner of "classic evangelicalism."
