This and That – 02-01-14

Not So Radical  – Even among Christian young people nowadays, there an unusual fascination with the idea of being radical. I’ve lost count of how many books aimed at Young-and-Restless evangelicals have the word radical featured prominently in the title or the cover copy. Radical Reformission. Radical Grace. Radical Restoration. Radical Christianity. And my favorite: The Irresistible Revolution: Living as an Ordinary Radical. Suddenly that makes perfect sense. Anything radical is now ordinary. It’s not really radical to want to be radical anymore. The average evangelical today seems to think that if you don’t live a lifestyle that is spiritually and politically unorthodox, unconventional, eccentric, conspicuously radical, then you’re not really following Jesus like you should. – Phil Johnson
