When I was in seminary, in the first year of this millennium of ours, I was quite sure I was not an evangelical: I was part of the Stone-Campbell movement, and ours was no inerrantist holdover from the Scopes Trial but a nineteenth-century Protestant unity movement. Then I arrived at the University of Georgia English department, and suddenly, as someone who was neither a Catholic nor an atheist, I became by a kind of default an evangelical.  I did, after all, read the Bible and pray a fair bit. Now I’m a professor at a historically Pentecostal college, and I find myself once more an evangelical. But what does that word mean? Thomas Kidd is here to let us know. His new book Who Is an Evangelical? explores the history of the term and the movement, and Christian Humanist Profiles is glad to welcome him to the show.
