The Great Evangelical Disaster Revisited

by Peter C Glover

Book Image Not Available
Overview
In the 30 years since Dr Francis Schaeffer’s The Great Evangelical Disaster showed how what was supposed to be ‘the Bible-believing evangelical church’ was largely becoming ineffectual and abandoned by God as a result of becoming increasingly dominated by a new ‘super-spirituality’. Peter C Glover’s The Great Evangelical Disaster Revisited not only shows how evangelicals failed entirely to heed Schaeffer’s warning but identifies those chiefly responsible for the disaster and how today’s evangelicals have learned little from it. He makes a case for why in praying for revival modern evangelicals are simply wasting their breath. Instead he argues how God himself has laid down three biblical principles – three R’s – whenever ‘disaster’ has come upon the church: Restoration (of the Word), Reformation (of church & worship), Revival (of the people); and always in that order.
