The Evangelical Universalist

The Evangelical Universalist, by Gregory MacDonald.

This (provocative?  perhaps, perhaps not to “liberal” Presbyterians?) book came to my attention as the result of a discussion on the JesusCreed blog.

Amazon Product Description:  Can an orthodox Christian, committed to the historic faith of the Church and the authority of the Bible, be a universalist? Is it possible to believe that salvation is found only by grace, through faith in Christ, and yet to maintain that in the end all people will be saved? Can one believe passionately in mission if one does not think that anyone will be lost forever? Could universalism be consistent with the teachings of the Bible?Gregory MacDonald argues that the answer is ‘yes’ to all of these questions. Weaving together philosophical, theological, and biblical considerations, MacDonald seeks to show that being a committed universalist is consistent with the central teachings of the biblical texts and of historic Christian theology.
