The Courage to be Protestant

I am currently reading this book by David Wells. In many ways it is a summary of Wells' four previous books. At the same time, it progresses his overall argument and seems much more pointed and less anylytical than the previous volumes.

This book is stirring call to turn our backs on pragmatism and return to Biblical ministry and should be read by anyone in or interested in the ministry of the Gospel:

It is time to reach back into the Word of God, as we have not done in a generation, and find again a serious faith for our undoubtedly serious times. It is now time to close the door on this disastrous experiment in retailing faith, to do so politely but nevertheless firmly. It is time to move on. It is time to become Protestant once again
