Die Intoleranz der Toleranz

Mollie Ziegler Hemingway hat für Christianity Today das neue Buch Die Intoleranz der Toleranz gelesen:

Hemingway schreibt über das Buch von Carson, der übrigens auf der E21-Konferenz im Mai als Referent eingeladen ist:

Carson shows the structural flaws and inconsistency of modern tolerance and its fixation on opposing traditional Christianity. By tracing its path through civic institutions, public discourse, academia, the government, and finally the church, Carson demonstrates „how controlling the discussions of tolerance and intolerance can be, precisely because there are no other widely agreed categories for right and wrong.“

The Intolerance of Tolerance is not a political jeremiad so much as a call for Christians to fight for the value of truth. He shows how Christianity doesn’t fit into the world of new tolerance and, when it tries, ends up paying too high a price. The result is a dumbed-down, diluted, and minimized gospel.
