A Patchwork Quilt

Philip Yancey offers some interesting thoughts on evangelical Christians and why hard and fast labels may not always be useful.

Yancey gives short-shrift to US evangelicals who are conservative politically (or perhaps he gives short shrift to the why behind the fact that so many US evangelicals are conservative politically). Still and all, though, I think his move towards more generality in defining evangelicals is healthy, as it re-focuses one on the real mission of being an evangelical Christian, and not on the temporary political leanings of one group of evangelical Christians.
