WHO: Michael Reeves, president and professor of theology at Union School of Theology in Bridgend and Oxford, United Kingdom.

HE SAYS: “I believe there is a biblical case to be made for the importance and goodness of being evangelical.”

THE BIG IDEA: Christians must return to the root of the term “evangelical”—the evangel, or “gospel”—in order to understand what it truly means.

THE PROGRESSION: In six chapters, the author identifies the theology of evangelicalism and its essential doctrine, calling believers to stand with integrity as people of the gospel.

“For evangelicalism, being a gospel movement, is and always has been a renewal movement: We seek to renew ourselves and the church around the gospel (and never vice versa).”
