This dictionary is a comprehensive source of biography on figures associated with the Evangelical Movement in the English-speaking world between 1730 and 1860. It consists of over 3,500 entries and represents the expertise of over 300 international historians.
This significant period of Christian history in the West is organically related to the world-wide expansion of evangelicalism which has transformed the church in the twentieth century. The dictionary shows that in North America evangelicalism was the dominant religious influence during this period, and that in Britain evangelicalism was important both within and outside the Church of England and was responsible for some of the dominant characteristics of British society. It draws together interest in the movement on the part of historians and social scientists as well as theologians, church historians, and many concerned Christians.
Given the multiformity of the movement, the dictionary includes among the Evangelicals people who would not have recognised each other as such - Arminians and Calvinists, Churchmen and Dissenters, "Old Lights" and "New Lights". It includes not only figures of the large churches, but also representatives of small and often forgotten movements which undoubtedly derive from the same main stream as Edwards and Whitefield and the Wesleys: Sandemanians and Walkerites and members of the Teetotal Methodist Connexion.
Through its bibliographies, the dictionary charts the quantity of scholarly work devoted to the Evangelical movement, but to which no index or guide has hitherto been available.About the Author:
