The following two (lengthy) MP3s by D. A. Carson are penetrating:
- What is an Evangelical? An Assessment of the Evangelical and Roman Catholic Project
- What is Evangelicalism? (1.28.08, Grace Fellowship Church in Toronto)
This afternoon I listened to the more recent one (“What is Evangelicalism?”), and I was encouraged by Carson’s 4.5-minute analysis of the current state of fundamentalism. It is not particularly constructive when evangelicals and fundamentalists broad-brush and launch grenades at each other. Contrast Carson’s conciliatory attitude here: listen from 42:10 to 46:30.
Update: A transcript of the 4.5-minute analysis is available here.
