But we know that the term ..., 28 July 2007 [cached]
But we know that the term "Neo-evangelical" was actually coined by Harold Ockenga, one-time editor of Christianity Today and director on the board of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. In the foreword to Harold Lindsell's The Battle for the Bible, Ockenga recounted the early history of New Evangelicalism and listed its principles:
Neo-evangelicals emphasized the restatement of Christian theology in accordance with the need of the times, the RE-ENGAGEMENT IN THE THEOLOGICAL DEBATE, THE RECAPTURE OF DENOMINATIONAL LEADERSHIP, AND THE RE-EXAMINATION OF THEOLOGICAL PROBLEMS SUCH AS THE ANTIQUITY OF MAN, THE UNIVERSALITY OF THE FLOOD, GOD'S METHOD OF CREATION, AND OTHERS" (Harold J. Ockenga, foreword to Harold Lindsell's book The Battle for the Bible).

Harold Ockenga and the New Evangelical Movement he Founded
The following is a review of the book The Surprising Work of God: Harold John Ockenga, Billy Graham, and the Rebirth of Evangelicalism by Garth M. Rosell (Grand Rapids: Baker Academic, 2008).
Rosell is the son of Merv Rosell, an evangelist who associated with Ockenga, Graham, and other leaders of the New Evangelical movement.
Harold Ockenga (1905-85) was possibly the most influential evangelical leader of the 20th century. He was pastor of the prominent Park Street Church in Boston, founder of the National Association of Evangelicals, co-founder and first president of Fuller Theological Seminary, first president of the World Evangelical Fellowship, president of Gordon College and Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, a director of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, and chairman of the board and one-time editor of Christianity Today.
In the 1950s Ockenga helped found the New Evangelical movement that rejected separatism and aimed at a more positive and pragmatic philosophy as opposed to the negativism and isolation of fundamentalism.
