This course will trace the origins and development of evangelicalism from the Second World War to the current state of the movement in the 21st century. Dr. Joe Thomas will argue that evangelicalism is best understood as a spiritual renewal movement which has allowed it to bear fruit across three centuries and in several different denominational and church settings. It loses its vitality, however, when it departs from this spiritual renewal impulse. To better understand the current moment, this course will flesh out the spiritual renewal aspect of evangelicalism’s history and evaluate the moments when it has lost its luster.
