American Evangelical Missions to Europe in the 20th Century
Reihe: Theologie: Forschung und Wissenschaft
Bd. 63, 2019, 164 S., 29.90 EUR, 29.90 CHF, br., ISBN 978-3-643-91083-7

This collection of studies by American and European scholars explores the various ways in which American evangelicals found their way to postwar Europe, what they did there, and how they were received. With attention to the American and European organizations that brokered their mission, the social and political settings that framed their activities, and the mixed results of their efforts, these studies provide a much-needed overview how an important twentieth-century style of Christianity "returned" to Europe.

John Corrigan is the Lucius Moody Bristol Distinguished Professor of Religion, Professor of History, and Distinguished Research Professor at Florida State University. He is the author of many books on religion in America, religious intolerance, religion and emotion, and space/place.

Frank Hinkelmann is President of Martin Bucer Seminary International (Bonn, Germany) and lecturer of church history and the history of missions. His main area of research is the history of evangelicalism and the history of the Evangelical Alliance in Europe.
