Based on the reactions to the Al Mohler story in Christianity Today, Carl Trueman makes a strong argument against the existence of evangelicalism as a movement in any meaningful sense. This is a much abbreviated version of the same assertion D.G. Hart made a few years ago in his book, Deconstructing Evangelicalism. Both believe that the term “evangelicalism” has become so anemic that it cannot stand on his own.
Trueman’s point is something to consider, not only for evangelicalism, but also for other “movements,” such as fundamentalism. Think about it.
