In this inaugural Prophetic Christianity volume, fifteen contributors share their visions for a biblically centered, culturally engaged, and historically infused evangelicalism. Interacting with a wide variety of influential thinkers, they articulate several approaches to creating a socially responsible, gospel-centric, and ecumenical evangelical identity.

Richard J. Mouw
-- Fuller Theological Seminary
"These insightful essays speak to significant topics dealing with justice, peace, and the common good. More importantly, they demonstrate that the concern for such matters can be pursued with uniquely evangelical convictions and sensitivities. I hope this volume will be read widely -- both by evangelicals and by those who need to see evangelicalism at its best!"
Catherine Keller
-- Drew Theological School
"For those on the right or the left who think evangelicals cannot be progressive -- hearken! This spritely and sophisticated volume leaps nonpolemically beyond the stale deadlock to a creation-loving, Jesus-following, woman-empowering, justice-making, hope-stirring, truly prophetic theology: news indeed."
Alan G. Padgett
-- Luther Seminary
"Creation. Justice. Good News. Shalom. Resurrection. These and other core theological concepts form a rich tapestry of creative and engaging evangelical ethics in this new book by a younger generation of scholars. Deeply biblical and passionately engaged, these visionaries are anything but removed from God's world. . . . If you are interested in what kingdom values look like in our broken world, read this book."
Religious Studies Review
"Fifteen authors share their reflections on twenty-first century evangelical Christianity. . . . The composite portrait of evangelical Christianity presented is inspiring, involving fully engaged Christians pursuing justice in the world while staying rooted in the Bible-centered, evangelical faith."
Mennonite Brethren Herald
"There is a unique power in this collection of voices. There is a timelessness to this call to the North American evangelical Christian community to be about the major issues of our day. . . . This book is a welcome affirmation of the necessity of activism. . . . I would highly recommend Prophetic Evangelicals to the thoughtful and discerning reader."
