Not of This World?
Evangelical Protestants in Northern Ireland
by Glenn Jordan
Evangelicalism is one of the least understood sectors of Northern Irish society, evoking emotions that range from bewilderment to disdain and even fear
Arguing that evangelicalism plays far too important a role to be so easily dismissed or misunderstood, this important book is based on in-depth interviews with more than seventy men and women from the Protestant evangelical tradition. They talk revealingly about their deepest beliefs and convictions, their understanding of Northern Ireland’s troubled history and their hopes and fears for the future.
The result is a candid and complex portrait of an influential community – a portrait that also offers a more profound understanding of the wider society in which evangelicals live, work and worship.
