A best-selling minister and social activist offers an uplifting vision of what it means to be an evangelical - and offers loving guidance to all of those who wish to lead a genuinely Christian life in a confusing world.Named by Christianity Today as one of the twenty-five 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. A tireless crusader for human rights and the eradication of world poverty, Campolo is a "Red Letter" Christian - he reminds us that when Jesus spoke, he spoke of social justice. But the Religious Right and social conservatives have hijacked His message in the name of Republican politics. They have corrupted the faith by ignoring the true message of Christ and focusing instead on narrow "wedge" issues to win political campaigns.In "Letters to a Young Evangelical", Campolo calls on evangelicals of all ages to reject the false pieties of the Religious Right.With his trademark candour and wit, he offers sage advice to those who are trying to live their faith in a modern world that is politically polarized and predominantly secular. He is unafraid to touch on the hot-button topics that divide believers: abortion, gay rights, war, capital punishment, feminism and the environment. An activist, visionary and a man of deep faith, Tony Campolo offers guidance not only for young evangelicals but for seekers of all ages and faiths.Ranging broadly in subject matter, these brief, intellectual primers to life are a stimulating read for anyone who wants to experience the insights, wisdom and advice of today's leading minds.
