Fault Lines: The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism's Looming Catastrophe
by Voddie T. Baucham Jr.

reviewed by Allan C. Carlson

Black pastor and seminary dean Voddie T. Baucham Jr. argues that a theological and moral catastrophe within American Evangelicalism is now "unavoidable." It comes, he maintains, from a new Gnostic heresy—complete with its secret wisdom—every bit as dangerous as that which almost destroyed the early Christian Church 1,800 years ago. Already, he says, the ground is shaking, reputations are tarnished, pastoral and teaching careers are being destroyed, and whole denominations stand at risk of "being derailed."
