Has Evangelical Christianity become a political entity?
What is the difference between "evangelical" and "evangelism"?
Do evangelicals literally believe the Bible? Thirty-five percent of Americans today are evangelical Christians, yet many people are uncertain of what that term actually means. The Beliefnet(R) Guide to Evangelical Christianity offers a clear, unbiased description of evangelical beliefs and practices--including how they have changed throughout history and what they are now. It also dispels many current misconceptions about this faith group and its followers. The Beliefnet(R) Guide to Evangelical Christianity addresses topics such as evangelical Christians' approach to the accuracy of the Bible, their relationship with Jesus Christ, and the connection to conservative politics. Its nuts-and-bolts approach will appeal both to evangelicals who want to know more about the history of their religion and community and to general readers who want to understand the rise of evangelicalism over the past decades. From the premier source of information on religion and spirituality, the Beliefnet(R) Guides introduce you to the major traditions, leaders, and issues of faith in the world today.
