This book explores the role of evangelicalism in the conflict in Northern Ireland and discusses how it may contribute to a peaceful political transition. Ganiel analyzes the ‘traditional’ evangelicals who are associated with the Reverend Ian Paisley, as well as a new breed of ‘mediating’ evangelicals who have broken with the traditions of the past. Comparing evangelical politics in Northern Ireland to the U.S. and Canada, this book sheds light on future directions for Northern Irish evangelicalism. The conclusion has global reverberations as it reflects on the place of ‘strong’ religions–such as evangelicalism and other forms of fundamentalism–in contemporary world politics.
