Response: The Reality of Evangelicalism: A Response to Michael S. Horton

Roger E. Olson


According to Roger E. Olson , Michael S. Horton's analysis of evangelicalism is helpful but flawed. In this response to Horton's essay, Olson argues that insofar as Horton believes that evangelicalism either does not truly exist or should not exist, he is mistaken and offers a third paradigm for understanding the particular reality of evangelicalism. The paradigm Olson prefers is that of a loose coalition of like-minded but diverse Protestant Christians who share similar basic beliefs and a common experience of conversion to Christ. Mr. Olson is Professor of Theology at George W. Truett Theological Seminary of Baylor University, Waco, Texas.
