American Evangelicals have been involved in international affairs in two major ways: first, through direct global engagement as part of the missionary enterprise; and second, through public policy advocacy. The significant growth of Evangelicals in the post-Cold War era has resulted in a shift in influence from mainline Protestantism to Evangelicalism. This shift has been accompanied by a growth in Evangelical public policy advocacy. The aim of this book is to describe and assess the extraordinary role Evangelicals play in international affairs, focusing on both their direct and indirect influence on American global engagement.
