Regarding Labels

Standard

What do you call Christians who listen to / read Rob Bell, The Liturgists, Richard Rohr, Tripp Fuller, etc.?

I hate the label “progressive evangelical,” in part because it applies affinity with progressive politics.  I’m not politically progressive; good grief, I supported Ted Cruz (although I preferred Marco Rubio.)

But I have a real affinity for the socially conscious, tradition-questioning Christians who are serious about biblical authority (even as they challenge the way the established church interprets and applies it.)

Is there a better term than “progressive evangelical”?  Something to do with Sojourners?  Or Red-Letter Christians?
