Soong-Chan Rah

profrahI recently had the privilege of meeting Soong-Chan Rah, who I think is one of the brightest prophetic voices in American evangelicalism. The video below is wide-ranging, but it hits many of big points of his terrific book The Next Evangelicalism: Freeing the Church from Western Cultural Captivity. I especially appreciate his point, early on in this clip, that all the reports about the decline of faith are really quite ethnocentric because they’re focused primarily on white religion, especially middle-class white evangelicalism. If you look at the Global South or immigrant communities in the U.S., you’ll find faith that is vibrant and growing.
