By the 1930s most mainline Protestant traditions promulgated the key tenets of liberalism, especially an embrace of modern intellectual theory along with theological and religious pluralism. In Liberalism without Illusions, Christopher Evans critiques his own tradition, focusing in particular why so many Americans today want to distance themselves from this rich and vibrant heritage. In a time when attitudes about "liberal" vs. "conservative" theology have become the focus of the culture wars, he provides a constructive discussion of how liberalism might move forward into the 21st century, which, he argues, is indispensable to the future of American Christianity itself.
