A New Evangelical Manifesto

I’ve blogged before about the New Evangelical Partnership for the Common Good. Led by Richard Cizik and David Gushee, the NEPCG is releasing an important new book next month. Publicity copy for A New Evangelical Manifesto says that the book seeks to “think differently about how conservative faith relates to politics.” I expect that it will echo many of the same “consistent life” themes of the old evangelical left, but most of the names are new. I’m eager to read it!
