In light of Pat Robertson's and Bob Jones III's recent presidential endorsements

At its board meeting last month, the National Association of Evangelicals formally named Leith Anderson as its president. Anderson is senior pastor of Wooddale Church in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, and has been serving as interim president of the NAE for the past year.


I've had the opportunity to spend some time with Leith Anderson. I believe he is the kind of leader most needed these days, [...]

On Friday, Oct. 26, I was part of a small delegation of evangelical leaders who met with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. We were there to follow up the letter we sent to President Bush in late July to encourage more vigorous U.S. efforts to promote a fair, two-state solution for Israel/Palestine.

Secretary Rice understands the formidable obstacles. She spoke of a little moment of [...]

Who made the following statement in a recent television interview?

I'm not sure that that group in Washington is really representative of evangelicals across the spectrum. This is the Family Research Council and some of the James Dobson supporters, I just think that's just a narrow slice of evangelical thought.

A) Jim Wallis
B) Pat Robertson
C) Hillary Clinton
C) Rick Warren
D) Rudy Giuliani

Drumroll ... the answer is B) Pat Robertson!

On the eve of his dialoge with the Southern Baptist Convention's Richard Land at the Family Research Council's Values Voters Summit, Jim appeared on CBS News with Katie Couric last night to talk about changes in evangelical political engagement.

Last evening I attended a reception and dinner in Washington for evangelical Christian leaders, which is not an unusual event here. But the topic and, especially, the main speaker would seem highly unusual to many. The event, called "A Global Leaders Forum," was hosted by the National Association of Evangelicals and the Micah Challenge, a global advocacy campaign focused on achieving the Millennium [...]

As the Religious Right has diminished in influence, many are searching for a new political agenda that doesn’t fit the standard right/left battles of American politics and is more consistent with their deeply held values. That new agenda would be good news for the majority of Americans who are alienated by the political [...]

Tony Campolo 10-09-2007

In response to Stan Guthrie's article in the October 2007 Christianity Today, "When Red Is Blue: Why I Am Not A Red Letter Christian," Tony Campolo wrote the following open letter as a response.


Dear Stan,


I have to say, "You got us right!" You said:


Though I [...]

Evangelical Latinos and the New Sanctuary Movement.

I first heard about the letter of the evangelical leaders through an e-mail from Professor Ron Sider, who used to teach at Messiah College, where I graduated. It was a gift from heaven after so many bad statements by evangelicals justifying killings, occupation, and the pillage of our land using [...]

I've gotta admit, it hasn't been easy being a Christian Arab-American, much less in the evangelical church. How many times can you explain that Jesus wasn't baptized in the Rio Grande, that there are tens of thousands of indigenous Palestinian Christians still living in the Holy Land, and that loving Jewish people and "blessing Israel" (as is oft cited from scripture) doesn't mean giving the modern (and mind you, secular) nation-state of Israel a carte blanche on foreign policy or grant it some [...]

Rich Cizik is part of a broad and growing evangelical consensus on global warming.
Steve Thorngate 4-01-2007

There are few words thornier than "evangelical." It's a broad category that includes fundamentalists; it's also a reaction against fundamentalism.

Jim Rice 4-01-2007

The church consensus is solidifying on the need to save the planet.

Three evangelicals on the challenges of Israel-Palestine.

Administrator 3-12-2007

I've been thinking about the recent controversy regarding James Dobson and other conservative religious leaders who wrote a letter criticizing Richard Cizik and the National Association of [...]

Last week, I caused a bit of a dust-up by wondering aloud about Mitt Romney's LDS faith, including an admittance of my own ignorance about particular practices and beliefs therein. It seems to me that Romney has been less that forthcoming about his commitment to LDS beliefs and practices, and he will be compelled, as the presidential race goes forward, to honestly confront those questions: [...]

More than 1,500 young evangelicals from across the U.S.

Evangelicals find new resources to address domestic violence.

'I'm tired of those old white guys telling us what to think and do.'
