Wall Street Journal features Moore

Communications Staff — February 4, 2011

Russell D. Moore has hit Wall Street. In his op-ed piece for The Wall Street Journal, the SBTS dean asks the question, “Where Have All the Presbyterians Gone?” In the article, Moore observes that recent trends show that fewer American Christians identify themselves with particular denominations (e.g., Baptist, Presbyterian, Methodist, Pentecostal). As a result, nondenominational churches are on the rise. He writes the following:

This trend is a natural extension of the American evangelical experiment. After all, evangelicalism is about the fundamental message of Christianity – the evangel, the gospel, literally the “good news” of God’s kingdom arriving in Jesus Christ – not about denomination building.

Moore is dean of the School of Theology, senior vice president for academic administration, and professor of Christian theology and ethics.
