And speaking of Newman . . . (David F. Wells on us)
"It takes no courage to sign up as a Protestant. To live by the truths of historic Protestantism, however, is an entirely different matter. That takes courage in today's context."
Why? Wells answers:
"The truths of historic Protestantism are sometimes no more welcome in evangelicalism than they are in the outside culture."
from The Courage to Be Protestant: Truth-lovers, Marketers, and Emergents in the Postmodern World (Eerdmans, 2008).
