Video Icon

Dan Strange contends that the oft overlooked theological discipline of elenctics can provide a basis for convictional Christian civility.

Dan is the director of Crosslands Forum, a center for cultural engagement and missional innovation. Formerly he was college director and tutor in culture, religion, and public theology at Oak Hill College, London. Dan is a visiting professor at SEBTS. He is a contributing editor for Themelios, and vice president of The Southgate Fellowship. His doctorate under Gavin D’Costa at Bristol University was published in 2000 as The Possibility of Salvation Among the Unevangelised: An Analysis of Inclusivism in Recent Evangelical Theology. Dan’s book, Their Rock Is Not Like Our Rock: A Theology of Religions (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2015), received an award of merit for theology/ethics in the Christianity Today 2016 Book Awards. His most recent books are Plugged In (The Good Book Company, 2019), and Making Faith Magnetic (The Good Book Company, 2021). Dan is married to Elly and has seven children.

The framing for our Christian civility is a passionate intensity that is not only convicted but also elenctic in its shape.
