One of the most influential evangelical voices in America chronicles what it has meant for him to spend the past half century as a "restless evangelical"--a way of maintaining his identity in an age when many claim the label "evangelical" has become so politicized that it is no longer viable. Richard Mouw candidly reflects on wrestling with traditional evangelical beliefs over the years and shows that although his mind has changed in some ways, his core beliefs have not. He contends that we should hold on to the legacy that has enriched evangelicalism in the past. The Christian life in its healthiest form, says Mouw, is always a matter of holding on to essentials while constantly moving on along paths that we can walk in faithfulness only by seeking the continuing guidance of the light of God's Word. As Mouw affirms the essentials of the evangelical faith, he helps a new generation see the wisdom embodied in them.From the Back CoverIs the Label "Evangelical" Worth Keeping?Richard Mouw, one of the most influential evangelical voices in America, chronicles what it has meant for him to spend the past half century as a "restless evangelical"--a way of maintaining his identity in an age when many claim the label "evangelical" is no longer viable."I'm tempted to say that Richard Mouw is the wisest evangelical alive. Here is an outline of evangelical faith that can weather the turmoil of our times--and flourish."--Mark Galli, editor in chief,Christianity Today"InRestless Faith, Richard Mouw stakes out a thoughtful defense of evangelicalism as a spiritual and even intellectual tradition. Always compassionate, Mouw's voice is a vital corrective to the invective that distinguishes some prominent evangelicals. You don't need to be religious yourself to appreciate his earnest pursuit of truth and meaning in our divisive age."--Sarah Jones, staff writer forNew York magazine"Rich Mouw has contributed much wisdom to Christian faith and life over many decades. This wonderful book continues that gift. With characteristic honesty, humility, and hope, Mouw acknowledges the restlessness of his own evangelical identity but then points a way forward to a generous and faithful expression of that identity. For other restless believers, this book contains needed ingredients: some correction, some coaxing, and plenty of celebration for God's good gifts."--Leanne Van Dyk, Columbia Theological Seminary"Restless Faith challenges us to consider how we understand our faith and helps us make sense of what it means to be a Christian in today's world. This is a needed resource, especially for those engaged in college and seminary education."--Deana Porterfield, Roberts Wesleyan College and Northeastern SeminaryAbout the AuthorRichard J. Mouw (PhD, University of Chicago), a renowned author and a widely traveled speaker, is senior research fellow at the Henry Institute for the Study of Christianity and Politics at Calvin University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Prior to that he worked at Fuller Theological Seminary for thirty-five years, serving for two decades as its president. Mouw has written numerous books, includingRestless Faith,Adventures in Evangelical Civility, andCalvinism in the Las Vegas Airport. He was awarded the Abraham Kuyper Prize for Excellence in Reformed Theology and Public Life by Princeton Theological Seminary.
