Rev Canon Phillip Jensen

Large numbers, strong churches, numerous publications, serious thinkers, prominent voices and a place in society, evangelicalism has never had it so good. But is all well? Has the term become so diffuse and the constituency so broad that the core values and historical distinctions have become less of an issue? Or is this how it should be? What is an evangelical? Is it just another expression (alongside others) of Christianity? Might evangelicalism be on the decline as other expressions of Christian spirituality gain in popularity.

These and other questions will be addressed by Philip Jensen, the former Dean of Sydney and Anglican Chaplain to the University of New South Wales.
