"Unencumbered encounter with the living Christ…"

I’ve often talked with my students about the American evangelical quest for the immediate encounter with the risen Christ. I call it the QIRE (quest for illegitimate religious experience).  Some of my students think that I am exaggerating about American evangelicalism.

Rich Mouw makes my case.

Thank you Rich. If all goes well, Recovering the Reformed Confession should be out in the fall.
