What will the future of evangelicalism look like in America?

#What will the future of evangelicalism look like in America? Dr. Soong-Chan Rah of North Park Theological Seminary seeks to answer that question with his new book, The Next Evangelicalism. Dr. Rah graciously agreed to a 40 minute interview with Michaela and I a few weeks ago. I am featuring our conversation with Dr. Rah in this post because in it he shares some great insights for those of us seeking to build biblical, multi-ethnic community.
