The Elusive Presence

As Christianity As we speak’s editor in chief, on this column I replicate on American Christianity, however particularly evangelical Christianity. I’ve been embedded within the motion for over 5 a long time, so I ought to have one thing to say by now. And what I’ve to say concerning the motion is kind of what I’ve to say to myself, as I see in myself the identical shortcomings and potential that I see within the motion at massive.
The title of the column, “The Elusive Presence,” is intentionally borrowed from The Elusive Presence: The Coronary heart of Biblical Theology by Samuel Terrien, initially revealed in 1978. I learn the ebook quickly after it was revealed, however immediately I don’t consciously keep in mind a lot from it besides the title (although I think it has fashioned me in methods I stay unaware of). As this sequence goes on, the cautious reader will perceive why that is an apt title for the column. (Subscribe to The Galli Report e-newsletter for updates.)
