    During the Victorian Era, there were many issues concerning society and its religious constraints. Evangelicalism, a significant Protestant movement during this Era, strictly focused on the belief that salvation can be achieved through adherence to the word of God as delivered through the Bible (Schumacher, 1). This movement was a major issue to Charlotte Bronte because though the belief system “encompassed both a soul and a body,” it “repudiated both a pietism that denied the importance of the physical and societal and a moralism” (Schlossberg, 1). In the novel, Jane Eyre, the author, Charlotte Bronte provides religious figures of Evangelicalism as a way to express her disapproval of the movement. Throughout Jane Eyre, the protagonist, Jane Eyre, is presented multiple obstacles in which she must choose to…

    those of an ethnocentric perspective. By using a cultural relativistic perspective towards the Evangelical Christians, one may realize that their actions in the film are similar to other religions and cultures.

    The Anthropology of Fundamentalism Fundamentalism from an anthropological perspective is interpreted quite differently than fundamentalism from the historical perspective. First and foremost, there is no argument about whether or not fundamentalism describes movements outside of the Protestant movement in the United States.

    first 30 minutes at a little louder than normal tone. The pastor looked to be in his late 50’s to lower 60’s but didn’t let his age control his personality. He told several jokes the audience laughed at during his service. The church was also very friendly. We had multiple conversations with different people about our first time there and how it went. Grace Church follows the religion of Evangelical Christianity. Evangelical Christianity is a movement within Protestant Christianity…

    revivals. Evangelicalism is not exclusive to a certain denomination, but is a part of several different denominations.

    As main stream denominations continue to shrink and modern day evangelicalism has morphed into something more politically and conservatively centered, I found “Rescuing Jesus; How People of Color, Women and Queer Christians are Reclaiming Evangelism”, by Deborah Jian Lee, enlightening, profound and hopeful as it centers on new, out of the box ways in which people generally pushed into the margins, are redefining their evangelical Christianity. “Evangelicalism is anything but a monolith; it is a…

Wilberforce’s broad goal was to reform society in all directions to return people to living in right relationship with God and each other. In 1797 Wilberforce wrote a book titled A Practical View of the Prevailing Religious System of…

    Reformers such as Martin Luther centuries earlier debunked this idea of the Church’s salvific role and instead, taught that righteousness came by faith of the believer in Christ alone, and that the church had no role in the believer’s salvation. This laid the foundation for evangelicals, such as John Wesley and others. So, what were some of the roots of early evangelicalism? How did they give rise to this movement? Evangelical Christianity in the eighteenth century represented something new.…

    As the body of Christ (the Church) redefined itself again and again throughout history, believers were hard-pressed to embrace and work through the multiple denominations amongst them. Fast-forward centuries and thousands of denominations later, and we find the Church at odds against the idea (or the classification) of evangelicalism. In Kevin J. Vanhoozer and Daniel J. Treier’s Theology and the Mirrors of Scripture: A Mere Evangelical Account, they raise the awareness that the problem of…
