9Marks has their January/February eJournal available now on the subject of “The Mindset of The New Evangelical Liberalism.” Writers include Carl Trueman, Al Mohler, Russ Moore, Greg Wills, Michael Horton, D. G. Hart, and Phil Johnson. This looks particularly helpful as pastors and churches continue to understand the theological and cultural milieu that they find themselves in. What is an evangelical? What must someone believe to be an evangelical? Who should churches cooperate with? These are excellent questions and I highly recommend this series of articles on the subject.
You can access this material here.
