Roger Olson has been an Evangelical Christian practically his entire life. I am calling attention to his retrospective because it offers a particular view of the state of our Christian spirituality in America as compared to that of a generation ago. I did not grow up in the subset of Christianity he did, but his particular subset – nor mine, for that matter – is not the point. Rather, the point is that a baby has been lost in the loss of all that bath water. We don’t need the bath water back, but we are in desperate need of that baby.
