January 18, 2018

0 Comments

It’s a new day. Shock at a Republican president is no longer the exclusive province of the Evangelical Left’s flagship, Sojourners Magazine. Last week, several back-to-the-Bible leaders scolded Donald Trump over his foul dismissal of Latin American and African countries.

Mika Edmondson The Gospel Coalition hosted a thoughtful conversation in December about how Bible-centered Christians should identify themselves. Is the “evangelical” label still appropriate?
