This is an historical study of the evangelical religion in its British cultural setting between the 18th century and the present day. It aims to provide an overall survey of the movement but in particular, it considers the influence of evangelicals on society and the ways in which the evangelical religion has been moulded by its environment. Although concentrating on developments in Britain, it does consider influences from overseas, especially America. Much of the material for the book was drawn from biographies and other monographs and the large number of periodicals generated by evangelicalism, as well as participant observation.
