Description

Looking at what he calls 'The Coming Generation' of Evangelical opinion leaders and elites . . . Hunter draws a nuanced and finely detailed portrait of young Evangelicals who, while certainly more conservative than the mainstream of American Protestants, are at least ambivalent about some important aspects of fundamentalism and at most ready to repudiate elements of fundamentalist faith, politics, and practice. . . . With this book, James Hunter confirms his position as one of the most informed and informing writers on American Evangelicalism.--Samuel C. Heilman, This World

Back cover copy

Largely because of a superficiality of interest and a narrowness of intellectual concern, a good deal of misunderstanding continues to surround the religiocultural phenomenon of American Evangelicalism. To most, it still represents a cultural dinosaur that somehow survived into the twentieth century. Unbelievably, it not only survives but in many respects even thrives.
