USA Today religion writer Tom Krattenmaker‘s latest book, The Evangelicals You Don’t Know introduces non-evangelicals to a different kind of evangelical Christian.

“So you have a problem with evangelical Christians?”

the book asks.

Which ones?

Krattenmaker is clearly a non-evangelical, profiling the “the next generation of Christians” for other outsiders.

The assumption implicit in the title is that the reader has a preconceived notion of what evangelical Christians look like. They’re often stereotyped as narrow-minded and myopically focused on hot-button social issues like abortion and gay rights. The “new” evangelicals in his book — some of whom we’ll meet on the show — are open-minded and are championing causes like education and climate change.

Are you an evangelical Christian? What does that mean to you? If you’re a non-evangelical or tend towards the secular, what questions do you have about — or for — “new” evangelicals?
