Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In a sociological interpretation that is admittedly speculative at points, Hunter, professor of sociology at the Univ. of Virginia, examines the cultural milieu of contemporary American Evangelicalism. He broadly defines the term "evangelicalism" as the theologically conservative Protestantism found in North America, which includes fundamentalism, as well as other denominational traditions. Using the results of national surveys of students at 16 institutions of higher learning as a springboard, Hunter inspects various radically changing aspects of the modern worldfamily, work, moralityprojecting how they may affect the evangelical heritage. In so doing, Hunter provides opportunities for reflection on the general question of the future of religion in modern culture. Thoughtful, clearly expressed and abundantly researched, this is a satisfying, forward-looking study.

From Library Journal

As in his American Evangelicalism ( LJ 4/15/83), Hunter explores the conflict between orthodox Protestantism and modern culture. By analyzing the literature, plus data from an extensive survey of students and faculty at 16 evangelical colleges and seminaries, Hunter succeeds in shattering certain stereotypes about the movement. He also demonstrates some startling shifts in attitude on theology, morality, the family, and politics. These shifts reveal a significant accommodation to modernity that threatens to erode the "symbolic boundaries" of the evangelical universe, leading Hunter to find "reasonable grounds for pessimism" regarding the future of conservative Protestantism in America. A thorough and valuable addition to academic and seminary libraries. John R. Muether, Westminster Theological Seminary Lib., Philadelphia
