Arising out of the Whitefield/Wesley revivals of the 18th century, evangelicalism has become one of the most prominent forces in modern Christianity. Randall finds its spiritual heart in that old familiar Scriven hymn: closeness with God, deeply felt prayer, and abiding interest in Bible study. 144 pages, softcover. Orbis.

Evangelical spirituality, with roots in the revivals of the eighteenth century, is not confined to a simple church or denomination. Its overriding theme, as reflected in the hymn cited above, is the importance of a personal relationship with Jesus. Yet this personal experience has had broad implications for service and action in the world.
