This chapter discusses the actions of the evangelical leaders that led to the development of the progressive evangelical movement. The publication of the 1973 Chicago Declaration culminated the pioneering efforts of early progressive evangelical leaders. Through magazines, books, conferences, and even political activism, they urged evangelical audiences to fulfill the biblical mandate to promote social justice. Two magazines, The Other Side and the Post-American, became the centrefold in the emerging progressive evangelical movement by establishing popular forums for its ideals and attracting sympathetic advocates. They also shaped and strengthened evangelical movements by attracting influential proponents and connecting advocates within a network.

Keywords:   political activism, social justice, Other Side, Post-American, 1973 Chicago Declaration
