10 reasons why evangelicals should read Pope Francis | Religion News Service

30 Nov

Messiah College historian John Fea provides some thoughtful (and respectful) observations about Pope Francis’ Evangelii Gaudium from the perspective of evangelical Protestantism.

(I look forward to meeting Fea sometime this coming semester. He has agreed to be our department’s “outside observer” in our self-study. I’ve appreciated his blog over the past couple of years that I’ve been paying attention to blogs.)

Here’s Fea’s commentary at Religion News Service:

    Thanks, Doug; hope I get a chance to meet him (John Fea! Well, wouldn’t mind meeting the pope as well!)

      Indeed! We haven’t set the date for Fea’s visit, but probably after spring break.

      Francis seems open to invitations. Maybe send him a letter and he will pitch at you office for a hug and tea.
