The general editor behind an award-winning book assessing the history, culture, and beliefs of the 600 million Evangelicals around the world, says that the American Christian Right does not define the Evangelical experience and reflected on reasons for growing secularization in the West.
Evangelicals Around the World: A Global Handbook for the 21st Century, which has been recognized with the Gold Award for Education Resources in the third annual Illumination Book Awards, explores numerous far-ranging topics affecting the lives of Evangelicals around the globe, including the central pillars of what it means to be an Evangelical.
Dr. Brian C. Stiller, the global ambassador for the World Evangelical Alliance and former president of the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, who is also the general editor of the book, shared with The Christian Post in an interview that David Bebbington, a professor of history at the University of Stirling in Scotland, provided in 1989, a four-pillar definition of what it means to be an Evangelical, which continues to be "quite conclusive." more >>

Police in Washington, D.C. have blocked evangelist Ray Comfort and his team from giving away close to $25,000 in Subway gift cards to atheists at the upcoming Reason Rally, and even threatened arrests of those who approach rally attendees.
Comfort has since said that the giftcards will be handed out to homeless people instead.
A press release from Comfort last week revealed that the atheist outreach at the June 4 Reason Rally in the National Mall will no longer be taking place, at least when it comes to the planned giveaway of gift cards and 5,000 copies of Comfort's book, Why Pigs Will Fly Before America Has an Atheist President. more >>

WASHINGTON — Billy Graham's daughter Anne Graham Lotz told a gathering of pastors Thursday that the 97-year-old legendary evangelist's vital signs are great and there must be a reason why God is keeping him alive.
Lotz, the founder of AnGeL Ministries, the new chairwoman of the National Day of Prayer and the author of the new book The Daniel Prayer: Prayer That Moves Heaven and Changes Nations, was a featured speaker at the Family Research Council's 2016 "Watchmen on the Wall" conference and addressed the need "to reach the lost."
Before warning the pastors about how God is "abandoning" America because of the country's embrace of sexual immorality, Lotz took an opportunity in the first minute of her remarks to provide an update on her father's health. more >>

Graham, founder of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, said on his "My Answers" column on the organization's website Tuesday that Christians should consider their relationship with God as a gift that needs to be shared with others, instead of being embarrassed of their faith around non-religious family members.
The 97-year-old evangelical leader writes that Christians should see their faith "not as a burden but as a God-given opportunity — an opportunity He is giving you to influence your family for good." more >>
