The Rise of Evangelicalism

Christians today wonder if evangelicals are only concerned about politics (Donald Trump, etc). But evangelicals in the 20th century have a longer history, not only in terms of their engagement with politics and culture, but in their own internal struggles to understand their faith in the modern world.

This video tells the story of Neo-Evangelicalism, or the brand of evangelicalism that strove to be intellectually credible after the fights over Fundamentalism. The founding of Christianity Today and Fuller Seminary, for example, are part of the story of this new wave of evangelical thinking and writing.
