Evangelicals and the Bible: A Symposium to Honor David Bebbington @ Paul Powell Chapel, Truett Seminary, Baylor University
Sep 19 @ 3:30 pm – Sep 20 @ 6:30 pm

The history of evangelical Christianity has seen an enormous flowering of scholarship over the past four decades, spurred in part by interest in understanding Christian conservatism in the U.S. and by the remarkable expansion of evangelical and Pentecostal Christianity around the world. Much of the literature on evangelicals turns to the work of David Bebbington as its starting point, especially the “Bebbington quadrilateral” of evangelicalism’s defining traits. One of those traits is biblicism, or the primacy of the Bible as the unique guide to faith. This symposium will explore evangelicals’ uses of the Bible, from Anglican evangelist George Whitefield of the 18th century to African Pentecostals of the 21st century, as it honors one of the great Christian historians in the Anglo-American world.
