Evangelicalism and Fundamentalism in the UK

The Evangelicalism and Fundamentalism in Britain project is pleased to announce the dates for our first conference. The conference, entitled 'Exploring Expressions of Evangelicalism and Fundamentalism in Early Twentieth-Century Britain', will be held on the 8th and 9th of December 2008 at the University of Oxford. See the website for more info.

Contributors to the project are investigating the ways in which Evangelicalism and Fundamentalism have expressed themselves in the social and historical conditions of Britain and, in particular, the extent to which they have- and have been perceived to have - sanctioned prejudice rather than merely expressing strongly felt convictions.

The central question addressed explores the intersections of identity (who have been Evangelicals and Fundamentalists?), belief (what doctrines have they upheld?), values (what attitudes have they maintained?), emotion (have they displayed the anger often considered characteristic of Fundamentalists?) and practice (what behaviour in specific places have their views legitimated?).

The comments on Carson's message were quite helpful. When, however, I downloaded the Mp3, it was a message by Piper. Where is Carson's?
