What Evangelicals Do Well


by Rachel Held Evans Read Distraction Free

Scot McKnight posted some interesting thoughts on his blog last week about what evangelicals do well. I can often be critical of certain aspects of evangelicalism, so this was a good reminder for me that the movement has a lot of redeeming qualities.

McKnight points out that evangelicals are good at: 1) being ecumenical, 2) stressing the importance of the new birth, 3) emphasizing theology, and 3) urging personal transformation.

I think I agree...although I sometimes feel that evangelicals over-emphasize the importance of theology to the detriment of personal transformation.

What do you think? What else are evangelicals doing well?
