An Influential Guide on Evangelicals' Critical Role in Social Issues
As social problems including prejudice, classism, and war dominated conversations in the 1940s, orthodox Christians became known for their indifference rather than compassionate leadership around the issues. If the gospel has the power to change the world, shouldn't Christians engage in global matters with biblical authority?
In The Uneasy Conscience of Modern Fundamentalism, theologian Carl F. H. Henry critiques separatist evangelicals and their absence from the social arena, calling on all Christians to unite humanitarianism with Christ-centered leadership to impact the kingdom of God. With cultural and political analysis that is still timely today, he inspires believers to reject pessimism about the human condition and embrace action, responding to global needs and pointing to Christ as the ultimate solution for every social ill.
