Where are the Wesleys?

Twenty-first-century subjectivism and eisegetical hermeneutics have affected the church of Jesus Christ very greatly. Perhaps nowhere is this more clearly seen than in the shocking fact (which I just discovered today) that Richard Rohr's The Universal Jesus is number 5 at Amazon in books on Christology. A Post-Enlightenment culture is flocking to it, relieved to finally be able to reinterpret Christianity without reference to divine revelation. Have we ever needed a Great Awakening more than we do today? Where are the Wesleys and Whitfields and Edwards who are prepared to stand against the trend of our times and bear humble yet firm witness to the truth? 

I don't think we can keep our heads down below the parapets much longer.
