Few subjects are more important for fundamentalist churches than this. Church members are confronted with New Evangelical philosophy on every hand, including through nationally-syndicated radio personalities, the local bookstore, and Internet blogs. To be ignorant of the insidious and pervasive nature of New Evangelicalism is to be unprepared to identify and resist it, yet, large numbers of Bible-believing Christians know little or nothing about it.

Hosea 4:6 warns, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” Large numbers of formerly “fundamentalist” churches have capitulated to an New Evangelical philosophy in the past 15 years.

This book documents THE HISTORY AND SPREAD of New Evangelicalism since the 1950s and describes THE PRINCIPLES of New Evangelicalism in a practical manner so that church members can understand what it is.

These principles include the following: New Evangelicalism is characterized by a repudiation of separation, by a love for positivism, by a repudiation of the more negative aspects of biblical Christianity, by a judge-not philosophy, by a dislike of doctrinal controversy, by exalting love and unity above doctrine, by a desire for intellectual respectability, by pride of scholarship, by an attitude of anti-fundamentalism, by the division of biblical truth into categories of essential and non-essential, and by a general mood of softness and tolerance, of a desire for a less strict Christianity, and of a weariness with theological fighting.

The book also describes THE APOSTATE FRUIT OF NEW EVANGELICALISM, which is admitted even by some of its own leaders. Its apostasy is seen in the questioning of biblical infallibility, in its ecumenicalism, in a dramatic downgrade in Christian morality and embracing of the world, and in its tolerance of heretics.

The third edition, August 2017, includes an extensive set of review questions as a teaching tool. I have used this book and the review questions to prepare people for membership in our church when they are coming from a weak background.
