Reviews - What do customers think about Evangelical Truth: A Personal Plea For Unity, Integrity & Faithfulness (Christian Doctrine in Global Perspective)?
A great summary of evangelical faith Jul 19, 2006
Stott presents a short, but very solid book on the basics of evangelicalism.
First, he negatively defines evangelicalism by way of comparing with the two poles of fundamentalism and liberalism, and then takes the rest of the book to make a positive definition under three basic subjects: Revelation of God, the cross, and the work of the holy spirit.
It was particularly impressive to see Stott draw very distinctive lines between what is and what is not evangelicalism in places where is it necessary, and to make it clear in other places that sometimes the lines are not and cannot be so distinct.
I found this book to be very helpful in understanding the scope of evangelicalism - particularly for me that it has a wider scope than what I sometimes thought, and also in clearly defining what is not evangelicalism.
