Available in 24 hours
This latest volume in the 'A History of Evangelicalism' series surveys the extraordinary numerical and geographical expansion of evangelical Christianity from 1945 to 2000.
It discusses the globalization of movements of mission, evangelism and revival, paying particular attention to the charismatic and neo-Pentecostal movements. It examines trends in evangelical biblical scholarship, preaching, and apologetics, and analyses the impact of the new discipline of hermeneutics on key issues. Extended treatment is given to the part played by southern-hemisphere Christianity in broadening evangelical understandings of mission.
Whilst the role of familiar leaders such as Billy Graham, John Stott, Carl Henry, Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Festo Kivengere receives full coverage, space is also given to lesser-known figures, such as Edward Carnell, Agnes Sanford, Orlando Costas, John Gatu and John Laird. The final chapter considers whether evangelical expansion has been at the price of theological coherence and stability, and discusses the phenomenon of 'post-evangelicalism'.
