Liberal evangelicals walked a tough direction, dealing with expanding polarization in twentieth-century American public lifestyles; either conservative evangelicals and secular reformers insisted that faith and technological know-how have been inevitably at odds and that evangelical Christianity used to be incompatible with cultural variety. Liberal evangelicals rejected those easy dichotomies, yet still stumbled on it more and more tough to safeguard their heart way.
Drawing on heritage, anthropology, and spiritual stories, Bowman paints a posh portrait of those understudied Christians at paintings, at worship, and engaged in advocacy within the public square.
