An Evangelical Manifesto?

Apparently there is one.  I hope to give it a thorough reading shortly.  A large part of the manifesto seems dedicated to trying to rescue American evangelicalism from political subservience to the religous right, which seems to be a good thing.  However, perhaps the most questionable aspect of the mansucript is the attempt to galvanize and reassert “evangelical identity”, whatever that might be.  Jamie Smith has some good things to say on the topic.
