Made in America: The Shaping of Modern American Evangelicalism

Format: Digital
ISBN: 9781597527033


Michael Horton calls evangelicals back to faith and truth. He believes that there is a “crisis of truth in our time. . . . And it is due at least in part to our cultural accommodation.” Horton looks at the relationship between biblical teaching and what it means to be popular and accepted in America today, and he challenges his brothers and sisters in Christ to put aside hypocrisy and superficial success and return to a more humble, apostolic church.

Praise for the Print Edition

Here is a Jeremiad with a difference: it invigorates. Michael Horton is a well-informed communicator with fire in his belly about Reformation Christianity, and his sense of tragedy and outrage comes through as he traces out the spiritual slide of Protestant America into decadence and worldliness. Schaefferish in perception and compassion, this is a strong, good book.

J.I. Packer, professor of theology, Regent College

Michael Horton is a bright new light in Reformed Evangelicalism. He has an amazing gift for tackling a critical contemporary issue, analyzing it deeply and presenting his findings in readable and engaging idiom.

James Montgomery Boice, author, Foundations of the Christian Faith

This is a bracing challenge to let God be God, even in America, even among Evangelicals. It is a word that needs to be heard.

Mark Noll, Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame
