In this episode David and John sit down with Jordan Pickering the author of Turn Neither Right nor Left: Re-centering Evangelicalism, to talk about the current toxic polarization within evangelicalism. We discuss the trend of labeling (social justice warriors, liberals, fundamentalist) and dismissing and the danger of arguing from camps rather than embracing positive doubt, disagreement and questioning in order to better read the Bible and engage justly with culture.

Is the current interest in social justice a slippery slope that threatens to lead evangelicals away from the gospel? What would it look like to re-center evangelicalism on faith, hope and love? What could a re-centered evangelical movement of justice look like?
