Truly evangelical

The link in the title is to a piece by Elaine Storkey, (posted on the blog fatherjones.com) about her evangelical faith. Storkey is a leading evangelical Anglican scholar and was on the staff of Wycliffe Hall theological college, now in the grip of conservatives. If this understanding of Christian discipleship were what the term “evangelical” referred to then I’d be happy to call myself an evangelical. As it is I eschew those categories really. I am not “an evangelical” and I am not “a liberal” or “a catholic”. But I believe that to be authentically and faithfully Christian I need to be evangelical, to be liberal, and to be catholic.
