British Evangelical Identities Past and Present, Volume 1
Aspects of the History and Sociology of Evangelicalism in Britain and Ireland
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
'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
