THE EVANGELICAL INTELLECT

Two decades on from Mark Noll’s Scandal of


the Evangelical Mind, could we now be on the
threshold of another crisis of intellectual
maturity in Christianity? Or are the oppor-
tunities for faithful intellectual engagement
and witness even greater now than before?

These essays invite readers to a virtual


summit meeting on the current state of the
evangelical mind. The insights of national
leaders in their fields will aid readers to
reflect on the past contributions of evan-
gelical institutions to the life of the mind
as well as prospects for the future.

MAPPING HOLYBEYOND

The church faces an unprecedented loss of


rising generations.

Young adults who were active and engaged

cally on the church community and its role
in forming faith. She exposes problems in
the way leaders conceive of and teach about
the relationship between personal faith and
the local church, and offers fresh solutions
in the form of values and practices that can
shape a community into a place where faith

GEORGE MACDONALD IN THE AGE OF MIRACLES


Timothy Larsen
Hansen Lectureship Series
In this Hansen Lectureship volume, Timothy Larsen considers the
legacy of George MacDonald, the Victorian Scottish author and
minister who is best known for his pioneering fantasy literature.
Larsen explores how MacDonald sought to counteract skepticism,
unbelief, naturalism, and materialism and to herald instead the
reality of the miraculous, the supernatural, the wondrous, and
the realm of the spirit.

PHOEBE
Paula Gooder
Around 56 AD, the apostle Paul wrote to the church in Rome. He
entrusted this letter to Phoebe, whom he describes as the deacon
of the church at Cenchreae and a patron of many. But who was
this remarkable woman? Biblical scholar and popular author and
speaker Paula Gooder imagines Phoebe’s story—who she was, the
life she lived, and her first-century faith—and in doing so opens
up Paul’s world.
