About the Author
Iain H. Murray, co-founder of the Banner of Truth Trust in 1957, and its first editor, has served churches in London and Sydney. Currently retired, he continues to write and preach.
In the discussion and controversy which followed the publication of Evangelicalism Divided: A Record of Crucial Change in the Years 1950-2000, the author was invited by Dr. John F. MacArthur to give an address on the book’s main theme. The following is the substance of that address, given at the Shepherd’s Conference on 11 March 2001.
"Murray's critique is as kind as it is revealing and devastating. The icons of modern evangelism are shown as falling into egregious strategic errors which have weakened the evangelical faith at its very core. The bridges built to reach the mainstream became a two-way street by which those who sought to influence the liberals were themselves influenced." -R.C. Sproul, "Table Talk"
