"Post-Evangelical" Evangelicals

For a long time there has been a trend among North American evangelicals who grow up in conservative evangelical culture, and then at some point leave "traditional" evangelicalism for some flavor of progressive Christianity. On the popular level,  I'm thinking here of people like Rachel Held Evans or Rob Bell. Usually, these "post-evangelicals/ex-evangelicals" claim to have cut ties with evangelicalism and they no longer identify as evangelical; they disavow evangelicalism.

In Defense of Beauty and the Beast: A reply to John Mark Reynolds


John Mark Reynolds wrote a critique of Disney's Beauty and the Beast here, and here. Dr. Reynolds has been tremendously influential in my own intellectual formation, and I am nearly always in agreement with him. So I was somewhat surprised by his critique of Disney's Beauty and Beast.

Christianity Among the Religions of the World (Guest Post by Jeff Hubbard)

It will be a surprise to some, but as a Pentecostal preacher I have a love of studying other religions. I have a fascination with how religion works in society, individual lives, cultures, politics, but most of all I am interested in what religion tells us about Ultimate Reality. You see, the more I learn about religion and world religions the more I learn about the God of the Bible and the more convinced I become that He is the true God of gods.
