This chapter offers a brief history of evangelicalism. It traces the origins of fundamentalism and notes the distinction between the evangelicalism that emerged in the mid-twentieth century, as represented by a Billy Graham, and fundamentalism in its modern sense. The chapter discusses the rise of the religious right, then notes the three camps into which born-again Christians can be divided: traditionalists, including Pat Robertson and the late Jerry Falwell; centrists, represented by Rick Warren; and modernists, for whom Jim Wallis is a leading spokesman. The chapter then presents the main characteristics of evangelical faith and adumbrates the variety and diversity of born-again beliefs. It also notes unexpected convictions expressed by born-again leaders including Robertson and Ted Haggard prior to his fall from grace.

Keywords:   centrist evangelicals, Jerry Falwell, fundamentalism, Billy Graham, Ted Haggard, modernist evangelicals, the religious right, Pat Robertson, traditionalist evangelicals, Jim Wallis, Rick Warren
