“A spiritual gravitas” by David Wells

“This moment of tragedy and evil [referring to 9/11] shone its own light on the Church and what we came to see was not a happy sight. For what has become conspicuous by its scarcity, and not least in the evangelical corner of it, is a spiritual gravitas, one which could match the depth of horrendous evil and address issues of such seriousness. Evangelicalism, now much absorbed by the arts and tricks of marketing, is simply not very serious anymore.”

–David Wells, Above All Earthly Pow’rs: Christ in a Postmodern World (Grand Rapids, Mich.: Eerdmans, 2005), 4.
