Issues and Prospects
Evangelicalism, the largest theological branch of Western Christianity, is at a crossroads and the direction it takes on several key issues will determine which of the possible futures it will have.

Contributors include Alister McGrath, Eugene Peterson, Kevin Vanhoozer, Graeme Goldsworthy, I. Howard Marshall, Gregory J. Laughery, Stephen Lazarus, Robin Parry, Jonathan Ruthven, Christopher Wright, and Andrew West.
