About-

This provocative book offers a revisionist history of the transdenominational initiatives of English evangelicals from 1965 to 2000. Warner provides an authoritative theological analysis and a constructive sociological critique. This is an invaluable study for all those--in the academy, the church, and wider society--who want a fuller understanding of the social and religious significance and the evolutionary dynamics of this influential and diversifying religious tradition.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The process of evangelical polarization, which has a strong bearing on the future prospects of Christianity in Britain and in other parts of the world, is illuminated in this book as never before. It includes lively commentary, carefully garnered statistics, and thorough analysis of statements of faith."
--David Bebbington, from the Foreword

"Based on inside knowledge as well as telling statistics and sound sociological method, Rob Warner's study of English evangelicals in the late twentieth century tells a masterly though sobering tale of an era of evangelical entrepreneurs who had great success in gathering together the evangelical clans but suffered from a seeming inability to separate reality from hype, or what Dr. Warner calls 'vision inflation.' The book is a must for every serious Evangelical leader as well as seasoned sociological scholars."
--Andrew Walker, King's College, London

"[This book's] incisive analysis of the present situation and future prospects of evangelical Christianity will be of interest to participants and scholars alike, and it will quickly become a key point of reference for all work in the area."
--Linda Woodhead, Director AHRC/ESRC Religion and Society Programme, Department of Religious Studies, Lancaster University
