Overview

Originally published in 1996 as hardcover, A Passion for Truth was voted one of Christianity Today's 1997 Books of the Year!

Decades ago, evangelicalism was given up for dead in the academy. But since World War II, evangelical intellectualism has made a surprising comeback. Esteem has been regained especially in such disciplines as history and philosophy. Now evangelical theologians are making their bid for academic respectability.

A Passion for Truth, written by one of evangelicalism's outstanding theologians, seeks to show that the movement has in its heritage excellent resources to engage the scholarly debates of the day.

McGrath first sets forth the constructive ground on which evangelicalism stands, then shows how this revivified school of thought might respond to such important theological and cultural realities as postmodernism, religious pluralism and postliberalism. His book is fresh and exciting evidence that evangelicalism is coming of age.
