Letters to a Young Evangelical by Tony Campolo

Letters to a Young Evangelical


Letters to a Young Evangelical by Tony Campolo

Named by Christianity Today as one of the most influential preachers of the last fifty years, best-selling author Tony Campolo has spent decades calling on readers and audiences around the world to live their faith through committed activism. In Letters to a Young Evangelical , Campolo enjoins evangelicals young and old to resist the intimidating rhetoric of the Religious Right and think for themselves. With his trademark candour and wit, he offers sage advice to seekers who are trying to live their faith in a modern world that is politically polarized and predominantly secular. He is unafraid to touch on hot-button topics including abortion, gay marriage, the war in Iraq, women in the ministry, and relations between Christianity and Islam. An activist, a visionary, and a man of deep faith, Tony Campolo offers guidance not only for young evangelicals, but also for seekers of all ages and faiths.


One of the few authentic prophets of our society. -- Jay Kessler In spite of his many left-leaning political views, [Tony Campolo] remains one of the most respected people in a largely conservative evangelical movement. -- Ted Olsen Tony Campolo is my favorite evangelist. He blends revival with social justice. In that way, he's like one of the nineteenth-century evangelists who fought for the abolition of slavery and women's suffrage and social reform. His altar calls urge all of us to overcome poverty, and war, and stand up for human rights for everybody. -- Jim Wallis
