Readers familiar with Dorrien's work will not be surprised to find here a meticulous, articulate historical account of evangelical theology. Apart from its significance as a contribution to the historical record, this work is particularly important for its nuanced reading of evangelicalism and its careful disentanglement of the relationship between evangelicalism and fundamentalism. Dorrien distinguishes three strands of evangelicalism--classical, pietistic, and fundamentalist--then argues for the possibility of a fourth, progressive, kind. This fourth kind is tied to Hans Frei's call for a new orthodoxy in which (in Clark Pinnock's words) "each perspective can make a contribution, but none can tell the whole story. Each will enrich our understanding and need not be seen as necessarily in contradiction to the others." Dorrien's perspective is that of an informed and sympathetic outsider. That the view from outside is one in which "the confrontational spirit of evangelical fundamentalism is giving way to the discourse of a generous orthodoxy" bodes well for the civility of theological conversation. Dorrien's account is a significant contribution to both the tone and content of that conversation.
