Awakening the Evangelical Mind
An Intellectual History of the Neo-evangelical MovementBook - 2015
In Awakening the Evangelical Mind, Owen Strachan provides an accessible historical survey of "neo-evangelicalism," tracing the rise of a movement that changed the American church in profound ways that are still felt today. Beginning with the life of Harold Ockenga, Strachan shows how Ockenga brought together a small community of Christian scholars at Harvard University in the 1940s who agitated for a reloaded Christian intellect. With fresh insights based on original letters and correspondence, Strachan highlights key developments in the movement by examining the early years and humble beginnings of such future evangelical luminaries as George Eldon Ladd, Edward John Carnell, John Gerstner, Gleason Archer, Carl Henry, and Kenneth Kantzer. An indispensable study of evangelicalism, Strachan's work makes a serious contribution to intellectual history by way of social history, shedding light on an entire movement--Jacket flap.
