This volume provides the first comprehensive account of the evangelical tradition in the English-speaking world from the end of the nineteenth to the mid twentieth century. It offers fresh perspective on conversionism, the life of faith, reflection on the Bible and theology, and social engagement. These trajectories, through a period of great turbulence in world history, furnished the setting for the deepening diversification of the movement. This led to the fragmentation of the once broad evangelical spectrum into various (and often competing) strands.
this was a huge and challenging undertaking and Geoff Treloar has carried it off remarkably well -- Malcom Prentis * Church Heritage * If you are at all interested in Protestant history, or if you would like to understand some of the tensions within contemporary (American) evangelicalism, you really need to read this book. * Kouvanet *
