This book attempts to enter as sympathetically as possible into the self-understandings of movements usually grouped under the evangelical umbrella. For each of twelve major traditions, a leading scholarly interpreter first articulates the group's theological orientation and then explores the relationship between that movement and broader "evangelical" issues and organizations. Contributors develop remarkably useful and diverse conceptual strategies for charting the complex evangelical landscape.
In crisp summary chapters, the editors draw differing conclusions from the many perspectives offered. Donald Dayton wants to abandon the category "evangelical" altogether. Robert Johnston sees the varied traditions as an "extended family" whose members embody common characteristics to greater or lesser degrees.
