What are the origins of the born-again movement? How does the born-again experience relate to Baptism? Why do fundamentalists argue the literal inspiration of the Bible? Answers to these questions and many more emerge from the story of the born-again movement. Born Againism places the born-again phenomenon in historical perspective, beginning in the late eighteenth century as a movement propelled by speculations about the end time (millennialism). When millennialists merged with fundamentalists and charismatics, a powerful movement was born.
In direct non-technical language, Gritsch offers an ecumenical focus that should promote honest dialogue and critical reflection on a vital aspect of contemporary religious life. An annotated bibliography of suggested additional readings is provided.
