More than just an evangelical take

The issues discussed by David and Curtis are of relevance and application to all Christians who reflect upon their faith and actions. The history and experience of the evangelical movement mirrors what is occurring in the traditional Latin mass Catholic communities. To paraphrase Drucker, culture and sociology is eating theology for breakfast.
