Saving the Church from Its Own Success by Restoring What Really Matters. Evangelicalism faces an uncertain future. In this book, written just before his death, Calvin Miller takes a critical and prophetic look at the movement he loved, believing we can only shape the future if we understand the present. American evangelicalism, he warns, has largely adapted to the culture and as a result, is waning in its vitality and influence.
Rather than counting on some grand revival, Miller writes that revitalizing the heart of evangelical Christianity will instead happen one person at a time. "The Vanishing Evangelical" looks at the broad cultural influences that are shaping the whole movement, and Miller's sage counsel challenges the reader to confront these forces personally and take steps toward a personal, vital spirituality.
"Calvin Miller's amazingly insightful work is written for such a time as this, calling a sedated church back to her first love and to her rightful place." --Wayne Cordeiro, founder and senior pastor of New Hope Christian Fellowship, Honolulu, Hawaii
"Calvin Miller was a pastor, professor, artist, apologist, evangelist, and writer of renown. This is the last book he wrote, and it's well worth the read. We are still tracking with you, Calvin!" --Timothy George, founding dean of Beeson Divinity School of Samford University
