David Bebbington: The Dominance of Evangelicalism

The Dominance of Evangelicalism is meticulously well researched. Bebbington has shown himself to be an extraordinary scholar, not only of modern evangelicalism, but also of historical evangelicalism and the development of its theological thought. For those who are familiar with the subject of evangelicalism this work will still be beneficial, as the author provides more than simply an introduction to the subject. It is well worth the effort of digging through its pages.
