Description

Evangelicalism has been a remarkably successful and resilient modern form of Christianity. One striking paradox associated with the movement's success is that it has typically involved strong condemnations of some forms of modernity while almost uncritically embracing others. The question is whether American evangelicals have typically picked the right combinations of what to critique or embrace. This course considers these issues through a number of historical case studies.
