Item description for Evangelical Experiences: A Study in the Spirituality of English Evangelicalism 1918-1939 (Studies in Evangelical History and Thought) by Ian Randall, Randall I & David Bebbington...
Overview This book uses considerable primary material to examine movements of spirituality found within evangelical Protestantism between the First and Second World Wars. It analyses the way in which different patterns of devotion led to tensions and divisions between those holding a common commitment to the Bible, the cross of Christ, conversion and active Christian service.

He trained as a pastor at Regent's Park College, Oxford and completed an MPhil through London Bible College on the subject of the career of F. B. Meyer. He pastored several churches before joining the staff of Spurgeon's College, London, as Tutor in Church History in 1992. Here, he added Spirituality to his teaching duties and became college chaplain. He completed his PhD in 1997 focusing on the spirituality of English evangelicalism between the First and Second World Wars. Ian was appointed as Director of Baptist and Anabaptist Studies at the International Baptist Theological Seminary, Prague, in 1999, and in 2001 he was made a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society.
Publishers Description This book uses considerable primary material to examine movements of spirituality found within evangelical Protestantism between the First and Second World Wars. It analyses the way in which different patterns of devotion led to tensions and divisions between those holding a common commitment to the Bible, the cross of Christ, conversion and active Christian service. The chapters provide contrast between conservative views of spiritual experience, orientated to the past, and progressive forces, which were forward looking. It looks at evangelical Anglicanism, Wesleyan holiness streams of spirituality, those looking principally to the Reformed tradition, and Pentecostal-charismatic types of spirituality.Bifurcation bred evangelical weakness at a time when Anglo-Catholicism was growing strongly in its influence on English Christianity. This book seeks to illuminate this process and to provide a fresh interpretation of the period. It offers new insights, not only into a time of evangelical divergence, but also into the later twentieth-century story of the resurgence of evangelicalism in Protestant Christianity.
