Item description for Evangelical Identity and Contemporary Culture: A Congregational Study in Innovation (Studies in Evangelical History and Thought) by Mathew Guest & David Martin...
Guest explores how evangelical congregations have appropriated the values and media of contemporary culture in the propagation of a Christian message and how this process has shaped evangelical identity. He builds on an ethnographic study of St MichaelleBelfrey Church in York, Englanda recognized leader in charismatic renewal and evangelical innovation since the 1960s. Guest shows how a persistent tradition of cultural engagement may generate growth, while at the same time bringing about significant changes in the structure and function of the evangelical congregation, and in the social construction of Christian identity itself.
