MEDIA REVIEWS
"This one-volume encyclopedia sets out to define the essentials of Evangelicalism in the U.S. since 1940. . . . The volume ends with primary documents, an extensive bibliography, and a comprehensive index. This would be appropriate for public, school, and academic libraries where the subject of the book is a topic of interest." - Booklist
"Perhaps most impressive about this encyclopedia is the extensive list of reprinted primary source documents, from 1942 to 2017. . . . Demy and Shockley have successfully managed to contextualize the key figures, documents, and evangelical organizations into the larger fabric of contemporary American culture. Recommended for both public and academic libraries." - ARBA
"This well-written book focuses on American evangelism since the mid-20th century. . . . VERDICT Presenting a wealth of additional sources and valuable primary source materials, this is an excellent choice for seminarians, religious professionals, and others wishing to learn more about this thriving movement." - Library Journal, Starred Review
"[T]his book will be useful for those seeking to learn about the views, concerns, organizations, persons, and events of post-WW II evangelical Christianity in the U.S. . . . . Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals; general readers." - Choice
