Evangelicals and Science
Chapter 1; What are evangelicals?
This is the second installment of my book Evangelicals and Science (2008) and considers what an evangelical is, before considering the science.
Just what is an evangelical?
To some it is the conman revivalist preacher, holding out a begging bowl and jumping into bed with various women.
To others it is those who are very biblically-based in their faith and try to follow Jesus closely.
To many they a wonky American religious types, who sometimes pop over the pond.
Each of those contains a partial truth, but evangelicals are so much more.
They go back to the early 18th century and gave a new twist to Protestantism.
As it is not easy to sum them up in a few words, you can read my summary – which was written in 2007. It’s chapter 1 of my book Evangelicals and Science
