Sixteen church historians open a window of comparative history on the story of evangelicals in Canada, the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, France, and the United Kingdom. Amazing Grace shows that churches sharing traditions of conversionism, revivalism, activism, and confidence in the authority of Scripture could still look, act, and express their faith quite individually. Most of the essays originated as papers read before the Institute for the Study of American Evangelicals

Ravished by the Spirit : religious revivals, Baptists, and Henry Alline by George A Rawlyk( Book )

8 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ravished by the Spirit is a sympathetic yet critical account of the profound effect of Nova Scotia preacher Henry Alline and his New Light disciples on the nineteenth-century evangelical ethos of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and neighbouring New England. Alline's pietistic and mystical gospel was influential on the Free Will and Calvinist Baptist Churches and also gave shape and substance to the region's revivalistic tradition. In this provocative discussion of various religious revivals, the author argues that at the heart of these significant social movements lay a collective yearning for intimacy and a desparate search for meaningful relationships

Canadian Baptists and christian higher education by George A Rawlyk( Book )

8 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the late eighteenth century, Canadian Baptists have held sharply divergent views on the efficacy of higher education. For some, higher education undermines Evangelical piety; for others, it is a necessity if contemporary Baptists are to contend effectively with modern doubts about religion. The ongoing debate concerning Christian higher education has significantly shaped the contours of the Canadian Baptist experience for almost two centuries and continues to do so even in the 1980s. Canadian Baptists and Christian Higher Education deals with this debate and its effects on three educational institutions: Acadia University, McMaster University, and Brandon College

Is Jesus your personal Saviour? : in search of Canadian evangelicalism in the 1990s by George A Rawlyk( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Rawlyk maintained that Canadian evangelicalism has always been more accommodating than its American counterpart. In Is Jesus Your Personal Saviour? he set out to determine the quintessential nature of evangelicalism in Canada in the 1990s and to distinguish it from the more extreme evangelicalism in the southern United States." "Much of Rawlyk's data is taken from an Angus Reid poll in religious beliefs, attitudes, and practices in Canada - the largest public opinion survey of its kind ever conducted - and from scores of interviews with randomly selected evangelicals. The empirical data reveal some surprising findings, among them that sixteen per cent of all adult Canadians are evangelicals. Rawlyk also drew on his earlier historical work to establish a real connection between early Canadian evangelicalism and evangelicalism today." "What emerges in this groundbreaking and often controversial book is a complex, richly textured picture of a vibrant form of populist Christianity as experienced and practised by rank-and-file evangelicals. Is Jesus Your Personal Saviour? will inspire serious debate about the complex nature of Canadian evangelicalism in the 1990s."--Jacket
