An important contribution to the understanding of twentieth-century Anglicanism and evangelicalism
This volume makes a considerable contribution to the understanding of twentieth-century Anglicanism and evangelicalism. It includes an expansive introduction which both engages with recent scholarship and challenges existing narratives. The book locates the diverse Anglican evangelical movement in the broader fields of the history of English Christianity and evangelical globalisation.
Contributors argue that evangelicals often engaged constructively with the wider Church of England, long before the 1967 Keele Congress, and displayed a greater internal party unity than has previously been supposed. Other significant themes include the rise of various 'neo-evangelicalisms', charismaticism, lay leadership, changing conceptions of national identity, and the importance of generational shifts. The volume also provides an analysis of major organisations, conferences and networks, including the Keswick Convention, Islington Conference and Nationwide Festival of Light.

ANDREW ATHERSTONE is tutor in history and doctrine, and Latimer research fellow at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. JOHN MAIDEN is lecturer in the Department of Religious Studies at the Open University. He is author of National Religion and the Prayer Book Controversy, 1927-1928 (The Boydell Press, 2009).

"This excellent collaborative volume.does much to redress previous neglect of 20th-century Anglican Evangelicalism by historians." CHURCH TIMES
"To understand Welby and Wright (and much else about contemporary Anglicanism) you need to read this book. This volume is a collection by leading historians which digs deep into the subject matter. There is a strong case for arguing that Anglicans are especially ignorant of our recent history. This book is a serious help in remedying that deficiency." David Goodhew, The Living Church
