The Rise of the Evangelicals

"Evangelical" is a Christian label tossed around so often that I think it's become fairly useless because it's so indistinct. I'm never quite sure what it means to the person using it except that it's supposed to be a label of approval kind of like "born-again" became in the 70s: "I'm not that kind of Christian, I'm this kind of Christian."

So I found this interview with Mark Noll, an excellent church historian, very helpful in tracing the roots of evangelicalism providing a more distinct understanding of what it means to be an evangelical Christian.
