Adventures in Evangelical Civility: A Lifelong Quest for Common Ground
A Hopeful Calvinist's Quest for Common Ground
Richard Mouw, one of the most influential evangelical voices in America, has been on a lifelong "quest for commonness"--engaging with others in a positive manner and advocating for a "convicted civility" when conversing with those with whom we disagree. Through nearly half a century of scholarship, leadership, and ministry, Mouw has sought to learn from non-Christian scholars and other faith traditions and to cultivate a civility that is compatible with his Calvinist convictions.
In Adventures in Evangelical Civility, Mouw reflects on his almost fifty years of Christian public life, which provides a unique lens for understanding twentieth-century evangelicalism. He explores themes such as common grace, the imago Dei, and interfaith dialogue, offering a critical assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of what he has accomplished as a spokesperson for evangelical and Reformed perspectives.
