This book analyzes this popular religious phenomenon from an Anabaptist-Mennonite perspective. It considers the origins of Evangelicalism, its various branches, its positive and negative contributions, its sociopolitical context, and its theological emphases.
The authors of Evangelicalism and Anabaptism include such well-know writers as Ronald J. Sider, J.C. Wenger, Wes Michaelson, and C. Norman Kraus.
The essays offer thoughtful lay persons careful discussions of the biblical inerrancy controversy, Hal Lindsey's popular eschatology, "born-again" politics, the charismatic movement, and the radical "New Evangelicals." The book provides historical and biblical perspectives from which to critique both Evangelicalism and contemporary Mennonitism.
