Dr. Mohler wrote a very good response both praising and criticizing the evangelical manifesto. I think Mohler’s insight is priceless and is very worthy of consideration. Read his blog, entitled: An Evangelical Response to “An Evangelical Manifesto” here.
In the end, Dr. Mohler concludes the Manifesto is too thin in its theological matters and too much concerned with public relations. However, he sees some of the Manifesto’s points the same way I do (big surprise there!). On these points (like political action replacing the gospel) the Manifesto is quite good. But, there are, as Mohler points out, troubling lapses too.
I certainly recommend Mohler’s critique.
