What Scholars Are Saying About Thomas Kidd’s ‘Who Is An Evangelical?’

Thomas Kidd’s Who Is an Evangelical? The History of a Movement in Crisis (Yale University Press, 2019) is now available.
Here is what others are saying about it:

“Kidd makes a persuasive case for returning the term ‘evangelical’ to the religious convictions that once loomed as more important for ‘evangelicals’ than political adherence. This book is as important as it is timely.”

“Thomas Kidd, an accomplished U.S. historian and practicing evangelical Christian, reminds us that evangelicalism has always been primarily a religious and spiritual movement that, when at its best, has transcended race, class, ethnicity, and politics.”

“Part history, part lament, this book offers a bracing introduction to evangelicalism in America. Thomas Kidd tells the tumultuous story of a movement that began in the 18th century as a heartfelt quest for spiritual rebirth and holiness, but which is best known today for its political support of Donald Trump and the Republican Party.”

— Catherine A. Brekus, author of Sarah Osborn’s World

“Learned but highly accessible, this is an excellent introduction to U.S. evangelical history and politics. Sweeping across 200 years, multiple faith commitments, and covering a broad range of racial and political identities, this is an important book.”
