This book offers an authoritative overview of the history of evangelicalism as a global movement, from its origins in Europe and North America in the first half of the eighteenth century to its present-day dynamic growth in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Oceania. Starting with a definition of the movement within the context of the history of Protestantism, it follows the history of evangelicalism from its early North Atlantic revivals to the great expansion in the Victorian era, through to its fracturing and reorientation in response to the stresses of modernity and total war in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It describes the movement's indigenization and expansion toward becoming a multicentered and diverse movement at home in the non-Western world that nevertheless retains continuity with its historic roots. The book concludes with an analysis of contemporary worldwide evangelicalism's current trajectory and the movement's adaptability to changing historical and geographical circumstances.

'... remarkably detailed for a short study of such a vast subject ... a useful resource.' James Collins, Evangelical Quarterly
'... an important discussion on the doctrinal understandings of evangelicalism in its wide range of adherents.' Religious Studies Review
'[Hutchinson and Wolffe] aim to synthesise existing scholarship and to add to it fresh research in order to create a picture of evangelicalism as a whole from its origins as a renewal movement on the margins of mainstream North Atlantic religious life in the 1730s to its prominence as a worldwide movement today ... this book represents a tremendous achievement. It is consistently both thoughtful and thought-provoking and is a miracle of compression ... [it] clearly establishes the importance of the movement as a topic for further study in the contemporary work and the fascination of the history from which it has emerged - for this we are all in Hutchinson's and Wolffe's debt.' Mark Smith, Wesley and Methodist Studies
