Fundamentalism and Evangelicals

This chapter focuses on the relationship between Fundamentalism and Evangelicalism as well as the criticisms against the Evangelical movement. According to James Barr, the main case against Fundamentalism is that it gives more attention to orthodoxy rather than the Evangelical experience. Barr also declares in his works that most of the Conservative Evangelists at the current time are also Fundamentalists. Barr identifies the basic characteristics of the Fundamentalist movement. Firstly, there is a strong emphasis on Biblical inerrancy. The second characteristic is a hostility to modern theology, methods, and the results of modern critical biblical study. Lastly, there is the belief that other religious view points are not really those of ‘true Christians’.
