Listen to Elizabeth Palmberg and Soong-Chan Rah

Elizabeth’s got it right over at, reminding us of the under-recognized danger of consensus. There are important theological implications of her economic/political point, don’t you think?
And Soong-Chan has it right as well … As his important new book makes clear … just as the culture-war generation of white Evangelicalism has been largely discredited (supporting an elective war, failing to oppose torture, not to mention a better-late-than-never lukewarm response to the environmental crisis, etc.), a next generation of Evangelicalism is arising – no longer mono-cultural, no longer docile in relation to the right wing. Thank God, the conventional Evangelical consensus is being challenged and diverse voices are being heard. Good reading on the Memorial Day weekend.
