Evangelicalism and the Church of England

eceEvangelicalism and the Church of England in the Twentieth Century: Reform, Resistance and Renewal

Edited by Andrew Atherstone & John Maiden

A new volume edited by Latimer research fellow, Andrew Atherstone. This volume makes a considerable contribution to the understanding of twentieth-century Anglicanism and evangelicalism. It includes an expansive introduction which both engages with recent scholarship and challenges existing narratives. The book locates the diverse Anglican evangelical movement in the broader fields of the history of English Christianity and evangelical globalisation.

Contributors argue that evangelicals often engaged constructively with the wider Church of England, long before the 1967 Keele Congress, and displayed a greater internal party unity than has previously been supposed. Other significant themes include the rise of various ‘neo-evangelicalisms’, charismaticism, lay leadership, changing conceptions of national identity, and the importance of generational shifts. The volume also provides an analysis of major organisations, conferences and networks, including the Keswick Convention, Islington Conference and Nationwide Festival of Light. 


Andrew Atherstone is tutor in history and doctrine, and Latimer research fellow at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. John Maiden is lecturer in the Department of Religious Studies at the Open University. He is author of National Religion and the Prayer Book Controversy, 1927-1928 (The Boydell Press, 2009).
