Few have failed to notice the increasing accommodation of evangelicalism to worldly culture. Unless this trend is corrected, evangelicalism will soon lose the distinctives that have catapulted it to unparalleled success in the religious marketplace. This bold work by Robert Gundry finds a powerful and much-needed antidote to worldliness in John's Gospel. Built on a unique combination of biblical exegesis, sociological analysis, and contemporary application, the book traces the influence of Word-Christology throughout the Gospel of John, unpacking its implications for North American evangelicalism. Sure to generate discussion-even controversy-are Gundry's adoption of a sectarian interpretation of John and his evaluation of contemporary North American evangelicalism. Seeing the evangelical tradition as having moved far down the road from sect to mainline church, he argues that it now needs a strong dose of John's logocentric sectarianism to avoid losing the edge that has made it successful.
