British Evangelical Identities

I’m bound to note the recent publication of this new book, edited by Mark Smith (Paternoster, 2009). It has several contributions of interest for the history of British evangelicalism in the twentieth century, on subjects as diverse as masculinity (Kristin Aune); women’s ministry (Rachel Jordan); and church music (Ian Jones and myself).

Other contributors include David Bebbington, Ian Randall, Martin Wellings, David Killingray and Derek Tidball. Timothy Larsen suggests on the back cover that it ‘could well be the most important book on British evangelicalism’ since David Bebbington’s survey, published in 1989.
