A Rallying Call to Evangelicalism: “A Burning House”
“I’ve come to believe that we are integrating into a burning house.” These words from Martin Luther King Jr. describe how some may feel about the current state of evangelicalism in the United States. With many walking away from the evangelical movement, it’s important to earnestly engage in the conversation of why and examine the value of the term.
In Engage360 episode 119, Brandon Washington, Denver Seminary alumnus and pastor of preaching at The Embassy Church, delves into a thought-provoking conversation centered around his book, A Burning House: Redeeming American Evangelicalism by Examining its History, Mission, and Message. Brandon explores the history of the evangelical movement and the impact of the past on the present state of evangelicalism. The conversation highlights the need to reclaim a more comprehensive, kingdom-oriented gospel and the importance of owning historical realities in order to learn from them and foster true reconciliation.
