GregMacd.jpgNext week we will begin a short series on the question of whether or not evangelicals can be universalists, and to help us with that question we will be reading through and blogging about Gregory Macdonald’s book The Evangelical Universalist
. Acquire the book if you can — all kinds of used and new formats. The book was originally published in 2006 by Wipf and Stock and is now published in England under SPCK. 

Are you encountering “evangelical universalists”? How do they explain their views? How big of an issue do you think this is?
I’ve said a number of times that I think this issue is one of the most pressing theological topics for emerging adults.
The oddity of this book: the author’s name is a pseudonym! But, he’s now made public and he’s an editor at Paternoster Press, an evangelical publishing house, and he believes in universal restoration. His name is Robin Parry.
