Is the Word “Evangelical” Helpful?

Is the Word “Evangelical” Helpful?

The word “evangelical” sparks lots of different reactions, from acceptance and affirmation to feelings of hurt and hypocrisy. This word means a lot in today’s culture. But that wasn’t always the case. If you’re interested in learning the history of this word and how using it today can both help and hinder the message of Jesus, please read Timothy Keller’s New Yorker article, Can Evangelicalism Survive Donald Trump and Roy Moore? If you find the title of the article offensive to your political position, please ignore it for the sake of the content of the article itself, which we think is very good.
