(p.15) 1 Neoevangelicalism and the Problem of Race in Postwar America
Christians and the Color Line

Miles S. Mullin

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides an extensive survey of neoevangelical periodicals from the movement’s formative post-World War II period to explain how evangelical leaders embraced an individualistic and gradualist approach to racial equality for the sake of the movement’s unity. This moderate approach toward race relations in neoevangelicalism’s nascent state planted the seeds for the individualistic and relational response to calls for racial equality that have blossomed in evangelical churches today.

Keywords:   print culture, neoevangelicalism, race relations, twentieth century, post-World War II
