The term “evangelical” means different things to different people. In our day many people assume it describes a political identity rather than a theological one. So is the term “evangelical” worth keeping?
The key to answering the question depends not only on definition, but also context. In this new video, Kevin DeYoung, Russell Moore, and Mika Edmondson discuss.

He is chairman of the board of The Gospel Coalition, assistant professor of systematic theology at Reformed Theological Seminary (Charlotte), and a PhD candidate at the University of Leicester.
