This movement is encouraging. But my advice to Daly and Lyons is to not disavow the term "evangelical" and simply call themselves "Christian." Given the tarnishing of "evangelical," I understand the impulse. But they greatly confuse things when they then go on to speak for "Christianity," enunciating a view that does not represent mainline and Catholic Christians, not to mention the eastern churches. That works against wanting to hear what others who disagree have to say. It also furthers a bad tendency of evangelicals to just pretend the mainline church doesn't exist. For those and other reasons, we can't all just "re-brand" ourselves; we have to take responsibility for the traditions in which we find ourselves.
