Description

Popular Evangelicalism in American Culture explores the controversies, complexities, and historical development of the evangelical movement in America and its impact on American culture. Evangelicalism is one of the most dynamic and growing religious movements in America and has been both a major force in shaping American society and likewise a group which has resisted aspects of the modern world. Organized thematically, this book demonstrates the impact of American culture on popular evangelicalism by exploring the following topics:

  • politics;
  • economics;
  • salvation;
  • millennialism;
  • the megachurch and electronic churches;
  • and popular culture.   

This accessible and thought-provoking volume will interest anyone concerned with the modern-day success of the Evangelical movement in America.
