Gregory Macdonald: The Evangelical Universalist

“Can an orthodox Christian, committed to the historic faith of the church and the authority of the Bible, be a universalist?” This is just one of many questions dealt with in Gregory MacDonald’s book.

Gregory MacDonald enters into discussion with a wide range of topics and theologians from contemporary American Evangelicalism.

From the introduction to the book:

Gregory MacDonald: The Evangelical Universalist (Cascade Books 2006)

” Is it possible to believe that salvation is found only by grace, through faith in Christ, and yet to maintain that in the end all people will be saved? Can one believe passionately in mission if one does not think that anyone will be lost forever? Could universalism be consistent with the teachings of the Bible? Gregory MacDonald argues that the answer is yes to all of these questions. Weaving together philosophical, theological, and biblical considerations, MacDonald seeks to show that being a committed universalist is consistent with the central teachings of the biblical texts and of historic Christian theology.”
