(p.180) 5 Fundamentalist Apologetics and Evangelical Experience
Fundamentalism and Evangelicals

Harriet A. Harris

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the relation of Fundamentalism to the Evangelical experience and how it is perceived by other spiritual movements. Fundamentalists and Conservative Evangelicals are against the modernist movement because of the so-called subjectivist thought of the modernist. For them modernism and its use of subjective feelings of individuals in understanding the scriptures distorted the real value and meaning and thought of the Bible. Modernists on the other hand viewed fundamentalists and Conservative Evangelicals as Pharisees who followed a literal understanding of the scriptures, killing the Spirit by placing too much attention on its letters.

Keywords:   Fundamentalism, Conservative Evangelicals, mnodernists, spiritual movements, literal understanding
