The New Evangelicals: Expanding the Vision of the Common Good is out!

The New Evangelicals, about evangelicals who have left the right–or what evangelical theologian Scot McKnight called “the biggest change in the evangelical movement at the end of the twentieth century, a new kind of Christian social conscience”–can now be purchased here (of, if that doesn’t work, type into your browser: http://www.amazon.com/New-Evangelicals-Expanding-Vision-Common/dp/0802866409/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1319897799&sr=1-1). It looks at evangelicals, ages 19 -74, from firemen to professors across the country who have broadened their political ethics and activism from those  associated with the religious right to an anti-militartist, anti-consumerist focus on poverty relief, environmental protection, racial/religious reconciliation, and immigration reform. The research reports on sx years of field research across the demographic and geographic range in the US. The book is nearly 1/3  interviews, allowing evangelicals themselves to explain their religious beliefs and political/economic activities.
