Congratulations to David Swartz of Asbury University. In September the University of Pennsylvania Press will publish his much-awaited, Moral Minority: The Evangelical Left in an Age of Conservatism. (I love the cover, David!). As far as I know, this will be the first major historical treatment of the evangelical left. The book focuses on characters such as Sharon Gallagher, Samuel Escobar, Richard Mouw, Ron Sider, Jim Wallis, Rachel Heidi Evans, Jonathan Merritt, Matthew Soerens, and Shane Claiborne. I am looking forward to reading it.
Along with the book comes an impressive new website by the same name. Head over to “Moral Minority” and see what Dave is blogging about in anticipation of the book’s release. I have already added “Moral Minority” to my regular cycle of blogs that I read as I prepare my posts here at The Way of Improvement Leads Home.
