Item description for On the Boundaries of American Evangelicalism: The Postwar Evangelical Coalition by Jon R. Stone...
American Evangelicalism is a vast and nearly indefinable coalition movement of sometimes competing, sometimes cooperating denominations and independent churches whose ideological boundaries have been shifting since its postwar reemergence. "On the Boundaries of American Evangelicalism" seeks to account for the emergence of this coalition of moderate Protestants in the 1940s and 1950s, as distinct from fundamentalism on the right and liberalism on the left, and speculate on the reasons for the fracturing and decline of that coalition in the 1960s to the 1990s. Beyond recounting the history of postwar evangelicalism, this volume's contribution is to our understanding of how movements define their coalitional boundaries and how coalitions change and reconstitute their boundaries over time.

Reviews - What do customers think about On the Boundaries of American Evangelicalism: The Postwar Evangelical Coalition?
A very detailed and through investigation Apr 28, 2010
This gives a good historical analysis of the fundamentalist/modernist split within the Protestant Church. It is a bit heavy and hard to read, though.
Rather than glossing over the history (like many other authors), this author really goes deep into the issue by evaluating the primary documents of the time. You really get an understanding of the nitty-gritty details that lead to the modern state of Evangelical Christianity, today.
