Ideals, Conspiracies, and Realities: Christian Responses to the EU Project
The role, or absence thereof, of Evangelicals in the European integration project has been shaped by various historical realities and eschatological interpretations. How biblically rooted are our evangelical responses, and how do they compare with Catholic and mainstream Protestant responses? Jeff argues they reveal the need of a European evangelical, missional, public theology.
