This chapter explores the current situation of the progressive evangelicals, specifically during Barack Obama's presidency. It argues that their unique public theology remained the inspiration for leaders' contribution in political debates in advancing the vision of social justice and common good. The progressive evangelicals are still committed to encouraging feminist causes in religious and social aspects. Even as the number of Americans who accept same-sex marriage increases, the stand of the progressive evangelicals remains divided. On the other hand, the progressive evangelicals remain united in their goal to eliminate poverty based on their theological interpretation of economic justice and the role of the government.
