Reflection Questions
  • In what sense is there no specific beginning for the Evangelical Awakening? How is it part of a larger movement which also has no specific beginning? In what sense is, thus, the Evangelical Awakening more a phenomenon than a describable movement?

  • Who but Latourette would think of a parallel between the organizational outworking of the Evangelical Awakening and the phenomenon of the Roman Catholic orders? How does Latourette explain this? (See pages 1018ff.)

  • Do we see anything similar (and contemporary) to the Evangelical Awakening in the Jewish and Islamic traditions? In what way do all three traditions share, potentially, in the biblical emphasis on “the circumcision of the heart”?

  • To what extent do you see any connection between the swirl of scientific developments and the realities of Evangelical leadership and message?
