Tim Keller on the Future of Evangelicalism

Tim Keller says the word ‘evangelical’ made become obsolete, but the philosophy and theology will remain. In a recent article featured in The New Yorker, Keller writes, “The [evangelical] movement may abandon or at least demote, the prominence of the name, yet be more committed to its theology and historic impulses than ever. Some predict that younger evangelicals will not only reject the name but also become more secular. That is not what I have been seeing here in New York City. And studies by the Pew Research Center and others indicate that religious denominations that have become more friendly to secularism are shrinking precipitously, while the evangelical churches that resist dilution in their theological beliefs and practices are holding their own or growing. And if evangelicals—or whatever they will call themselves­—continue to become more multiethnic in leadership and confound the left-right political categories, they may continue to do so.”
