The Post-Evangelical Bookshelf: A Beginner’s Reading List For Finding Your Way In The Evangelical Wilderness

I’ve been doing an interview on “Post-Evangelicalism,” and I thought it would be a good time to list some of the books that define post-evangelicalism for me.

Ben Witherington Reviews “The Shack”

I’m very glad that Dr. Ben Witherington has gotten around to reviewing William P Young’s The Shack on his blog, and has given a very balanced, critical and generous review.
