9780195134995: The Church on the World's Turf : An Evangelical Christian Group at a Secular University (Religion in America Series)

Is it possible for conservative Protestant groups to survive in secular institutional settings? Here, Bramadat offers an ethnographic study of the Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF) at McMaster University, a group that espouses fundamentalist interpretations of the Bible, women's roles, the age of the earth, alcohol consumption, and sexual ethics. In examining this group, Bramadat demonstrates how this tiny minority thrives within the overwhelmingly secular context of the University.

About the Author:

Paul A. Bramadat is at University of Winnipeg.

Review:

"Rejecting stereotypes of evangelicals as 'illiterate hillbillies,' he focuses 'on evangelicals' creativity in the face of the perciecved hegemony of the secular ethos.' In this way, he challenges what he calls the 'profound condescension' he has 'encountered when discussing evangelicals with
liberal Christians, academics, and friends.'"-- Theological Studies

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2000. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Academics and non-academics alike have been intrigued by conservative Protestant groups that thrive in secular social and institutional contexts. This book offers an ethnographic study of one such group, the Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF) at McMaster University. These conservative Protestants espouse fundamental interpretations of the Bible, women s roles, the age of the earth, alcohol consumption, sexual ethics, and the necessity of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. How does this tiny minority function withing the overwhelmingly secular context of the university? The strategies of the ICVF seem both to strengthen and to mitigate evangelicals sense of difference from their non-Christian teachers and peers. Bramadat suggests that this model can also be useful for understanding the construction of individual and group identity among other minority groups, both religious and non-religious models.
