About-

The nature of evangelical identity in Britain is both a perennial issue and an urgent one. This is especially the case because evangelical Christianity has, throughout its history, been characterized by a remarkable degree of dynamism and diversity. These essays, by a distinguished list of contributors, explore the issue of evangelical identity and the nature of evangelical diversity by investigating the interactions of evangelicalism with national and denominational identities, race and gender, and its expression in spirituality and culture from the evangelical revivals of the eighteenth century to evangelical churches and movements of the present.

A second volume will investigate similar issues in relation to evangelical interactions with the Bible and theology.

Contributors: Rob Ambler, Andrew Atherstone, Kristin Aune, David W. Bebbington, David Goodhew, John Harvey, Andrew R. Holmes, David Ceri Jones, Ian Jones, Rachel Jordan, David Killingray, Ian Randall, Mark Smith, Brian Talbot, Peter Webster, Martin Wellings, and Eryn White.

Endorsements & Reviews-

'Mark Smith has assembled an oustanding team of scholars for this superb collection. British Evangelical Identities is particulary attentive to regional contexts, including essays on Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, and it breaks new ground by including chapters on such neglected themes as black evangelicals and the evangelical construction of masculinity. This could well be the most important book on British evangelicalism since David Bebbington's landmark study almost twenty years ago.'
--Timothy Larsen, McManis Professor of Christian Thought, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois

'This volume addresses a good question: how have evangelicals thought about their own identity and how have such thoughts affected their broader efforts for the Kingdom of God. All who care for diligent scholarship, careful reasoning, and Christian edification will greatly value this book.'
--Mark A. Noll, McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame, Indiana
