A Passionate Faith: What Makes An Evangelical?

Richard Turnbull

Paperback 2012-06-22

Publisher Description

"Evangelical" is a badge, a line in the sand, a term of abuse, a much-overworked word. What are the key markers of the evangelical faith? How did the movement come into being, and how is it changing? What is its style, then and now, and what is its theology? Richard Turnbull shows how and why the evangelicals have not only survived, but have grown strong, and explains their unique contribution to world Christianity. He covers the historical roots of evangelical spirituality; the place of the Bible; the concepts of conversion, personal transformation and call; evangelism and service; worship and revival. "The greatest need of our age is for the Church to rediscover her evangelical foundations. Dr Turnbull tells the stirring story of the rise of evangelicalism - of a beautiful Saviour, a Living Scripture, a heart-felt Song and a sending Spirit. Read this book, recall the cloud of witnesses, remind yourself of what matters, revive your own faith, then go reach a lost world for Christ." - Simon Ponsonby, Pastor of Theology at St Aldates Church, Oxford "There are great riches within the evangelical tradition to resource the whole Church and it is vital that evangelicals become better acquainted with their heritage. Richard Turnbull's study shows how evangelicals in the past forged a spirituality that had clarity and depth, and calls us to do the same." - Revd Dr Liz Hoare, Tutor in Prayer, Spirituality and Mission at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford The Revd Dr Richard Turnbull is Principal of Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. He has held a variety of senior positions within the Church of England and has a PhD in theology from Durham. He is also a chartered accountant.
