Welcome to my book recommendation of The Next Evangelicalism by Soong-Chan Rah.
What’s the book about?
This book discusses the characteristics of American Christianity that reflect the values of American society rather than or more than the values of Scripture. This consideration is placed in context with the reality of increasing immigration and mixing of people around the globe in order to clarify the problem of declining American churches (in contrast to the booming global Christianity); thus, the author challenges American Christians to consider the typically white and Western philosophies and cultural traditions that are hindering a full expression of the gospel.
