Some would argue that the term “evangelical” is no longer useful and should be abandoned because of the ways in which it has been politicized in recent years. But David Bebbington makes the alternative case that we owe it to fellow Christians around the globe to retrieve the term and the movement it represents from those who have distorted it.
David Bebbington is Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Stirling in Scotland and Distinguished Visiting Professor of History at Baylor University. He is a leading expert on the history of the global evangelical movement. Together with Mark Noll and George Marsden, David edited an important and influential book entitled, “Evangelicals: Who They Have Been, Are Now, and Could Be.”
