Jake Meador, a writer and editor in Lincoln, Nebraska, who earned a degree in history from the University of Nebraska discusses in this very interesting article published by Books & Culture the pros and cons of Tom Oden’s ‘postconsetrvative evangelicalism’ proposal presented in the recent book Four Views on the Spectrum of Evangelicalism.
I highly recommend this article to all those interested in the fate of evangelicalism. Those who know me will realise probably that the author is much more sceptical than I am about Oden’s proposal. Nevertheless, the discussion is worth considering. I would suggest.

Uneasy Bedfellows: Finding a Home in Two Conflicting Theological Movements « Musings of a Hardlining Moderate.
This is a very important text and I submit it to my friends who have a serious interest in theology and an open mind.
Here is my short comment to Carson Clark, the author of this post:
It took you two years to write this and I have to expedite my little comment in a few minutes, as I need to leave soon for the airport.
I read your text with the greatest interest, but my baby sitting responsibility this week for three very active boys (My daughter was away) did not allow me many spare moments even for my job.
Anyway, I respect and admire those I know in the two camps you have mentioned.
Personally, I feel closer to the paleo-orthodox camp, simply because of its stronger appeal to spirituality. Although I appreciate and agree with many of the insights of the postfundationalists, philosophy is not my preferred discipline. I value it as an instrument, but I am wary of its speculative bias.
That will be all for now. I will treasure this text. Thanks.
