The Fundamentalist Mindset

Lee Quinby

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores shifts within contemporary apocalypticism to gauge a sense of their effects on American fundamentalism and evangelicalism in the 21st century. The first part of the chapter describes the old apocalyptic way of thinking, particularly in light of its gender and sexual premises, and the psychological strife it creates. The second part looks at gradual shifts in the patriarchal legacy that reflect the impact of social justice movements and social change generally. The third part considers the ramifications of current, rapid-fire modifications in American apocalypticism due to the propulsions of media- and commodity-influenced portrayals.

Keywords:   American fundamentalism, fundamentalist mindset, Christianity, apocalypticism, evangelicalism
