who said it?

Can you identify the source of this quote? What about the date and publication?

Today, fundamentalism is said to be in an identity crisis. It is allegedly trying to discover what it is. New self-definitions are being heard which say that a fundamentalist is one who is faithful to expository preaching, practices church discipline, repudiates easy believism, and is aggressive in evangelism. Or some imply that a fundamentalist is one who believes in inerrancy and does not cooperate with Roman Catholics, or is one who believes the “fundamentals” but is less militant and separatistic than formerly thought. The truth is that these are things that new evangelicals and self-proclaimed non-fundamentalists also believe and practice, leaving a distinctly fundamentalist self-identity completely vacuous. This all points up the fact that many are simply confused, and this includes would-be leaders as well as followers and well-wishers. Judging by some of the prevalent ambiguity, one is sometimes tempted to ask, Will the real fundamentalist please stand up?

  2. Hey Duncan, Google is cheating….so I guess that means you won’t have any qualms about telling me your “secret” tomorrow…. :)

    I was going to guess John Ashbrook.

  3. Well, now that the secret is out…

    I don’t mind if Andy gets in on Duncan’s info first.

    As for this article by McCune, I think it is phenomenal. Superb. Outstanding. I highly recommend it. Follow Duncan’s link above and read it for yourself.

  4. Andy: You know, it never even occurred to me that I was cheating. Next time I’ll make sure I play fair and guess something before I Google. :)

    Secondly, to anyone who can’t read that whole article from the link I posted earlier, DBTS has it as a free PDF on their site: http://tinyurl.com/5zjwdx
