The Courage to Be Protestant: Truth-lovers, Marketers, and Emergents in the Postmodern World
David F. Wells concludes Chapter II: Christianity for Sale in The Courage to Be Protestant: Truth-lovers, Marketers, and Emergents in the Postmodern World (Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans Press, 2008) by declaring:
It is time to reach back into the Word of God, as we have not done in a generation, and find again a serious faith for our undoubtedly serious times. It is now time to close the door on this disastrous experiment in retailing faith, to do so politely but nevertheless firmly. It is time to move on. It is time to become Protestant once again (58).
