I note a small spate of interest in the loosening of the connection between US evangelicals and right-wing politics:
(i) Bernice Martin takes issue with Stephen Bates’ recent God’s Own Country, and with Charles Marsh’s Wayward Christian Soldiers, in the TLS (April 16th).
(ii) Giles Fraser, no evangelical, wrote in the Guardian of his own surprising encounters in the US (Guardian, February 8th).
It strikes me that there are probably similar movements within British evangelicalism, but that they have not yet made it onto the media radar. The parallels are not exact by any means, but perhaps worth exploring.
