This major textbook is a newly researched historical study of Evangelical religion in its British cultural setting from its inception in the time of John Wesley to charismatic renewal today.

From 1730 to 1980s, I wish it went further. Covers all the names you know and many you dont. This book came up with the evangelical quadrilateral, conversion, cross, bible, and activism. It emphasises the way evangelical's teaching has been influenced by culture, first the enlightenment, then romanticism, and even modernism. It is convinced that evangelical theology has altered a lot and it was interesting to read about how millenarianism had such a powerful effect, especially premillenarianism which put people off involvement with the world. The book documents also the time spent, perhaps not very productively, on holiness teaching and charismatic disputes. ( )
