Summary note
"Evangelicalism has rapidly become one of the most significant religious movements in the modern world. Evangelicals affect elections up and down the Americas and across Africa, provoke governments throughout Asia, fill up some of the largest church buildings, and possess the largest congregations of any religion in the world. This Very Short Introduction tells the story of global evangelicalism - perhaps the most dynamic, and certainly one of the largest, religious and cultural movements of our time. Evangelicalism: A Very Short Introduction focuses on what motivates evangelicals, on their hopes and fears, and on their agenda for the future"-- Provided by publisher.
