In this course, students will examine the history and complex religious tradition of American Evangelicalism with attention to related movements like Pentecostalism and fundamentalism. Through guided readings and writing assignments, students will analyze Evangelicalism as a social and cultural movement, paying particular attention to issues of gender, race, political involvement, and how this movement has shaped the contemporary Brethren in Christ Church and how the Brethren in Christ have shaped this movement.
