The Evangelical Mind

See The Wall Street Journal on the evangelical mind. Sadly, the resurgence of evangelicals in philosophy and American history was not noted, although this has been pronounced in the past thirty years. While Charles Malik's famous address of 1979 is mentioned (Malik was Orthodox, not evangelical) , the more significant influence of Francis Schaeffer is not. Further, Terry Eagleton is referred to as a Christian, when he is (last I heard) an atheist.

With the downhill slide of so-called evangelicals from the "evangelical" Lutheran church to other "evangelicals" including the president of the national association of 'evangelicals' who have endorsed the global warming group think and turned their backs on the future of the poor. I will no longer use this term to identify myself.
