Description: The authors offer an extensive treatment of evangelical involvement in the First and Second World Wars, and in
the wars in Korea, Vietnam and Afghanistan. They consider Alan Walker and Billy Graham and the development of an energetic evangelism more calculated to address global fears and personal anxieties. And they show that although, by the beginning of the twenty-first century, the movement had trifurcated into conservative, progressive and Pentecostal branches, each had learned the necessity of bringing a prophetic ministry to bear on social issues in order toachieve greater engagement with the wider society.

This ambitious study seeks to recognise the influence of 'the public opening up of the word of Christ to the world', 'to tell the truth about his influence' on Australia's social and cultural history, and to show that, in spite of secularism's success in marginalising faith, evangelical Christianity continues to be as much a public ethic as a personal credo.
