Group Book Review: The Courage To Be Protestant by David Wells

The Courage To Be ProtestantSaid at Southern is coordinating a group book review & forum based on the new book by David F. Wells titled The Courage To Be Protestant. In this post, I’ll introduce our project and provide some background information on David Wells.

About The Group Book Review

I’ve drafted several friends and frequent readers to contribute to the project. Each guest writer has agreed to post a short discussion of one chapter from the book. Then we’ll use the comment section on each post as a mini-forum to discuss issues raised by that chapter. Here is what I’ve asked each contributor to write:

  1. Chapter Summary (about 2 paragraphs)
  2. Personal Observations and Comment (about 1 paragraph)
  3. Several Questions For Readers To Discuss (bulleted list of about 3 questions)

Posting Schedule

How You Can Get Involved

To make this project work, we’ll need many engaged readers. So, I want to encourage everyone to get involved. Make plans to read along in the book and contribute to the conversation.

    Thank you for this helpful summary. The promise that one can “customize your own experience” in the linked-to Hybels/Kimball/McLaren conference seems to encapsulate Wells’ judgment of what evangelicalism has become.
