From Moral Majority to Prophetic Minority

American evangelicals are, sometimes frantically, trying to adjust to an increasingly post-Christian America. We can no longer pretend that we are a 'moral majority,' sharing 'values' with the American mainstream. In a quest to differentiate themselves from the failures of the old Religious Right, some younger evangelicals wish to retreat into a libertarian cultural isolationism, and some wish to adjust to ambient culture. How do we live as a prophetic minority, challenging the culture with a gospel vision rooted in the kingdom of God without abandoning our mission as those who are ambassadors of reconciliation in a broken world? How do Christians live out a distinctively Christian witness in the aftermath of the culture wars?
