Of the twenty-two Evangelicals who have been studied, some have been so widely influential that they are obvious inclusions, others though less prominent are still remembered while a few are all but forgotten. Selection was controlled by several considerations. The period covered spans from the eighteenth century Revival to the present day. Figures are included from only Britain and America. The aim throughout has been to provide an appreciative exposition of Evangelical spirituality, with some evaluative comment. In Evangelicalism there is extraordinary diversity in spiritual experience, doctrinal emphasis and personal temperment, to the enrichment of the whole Church. It has its share, too, of weaknesses, blind-spots and inner tensions. But judged by its best representatives, some of them to be found in this book, the Evangelical spiritual tradition is a continuing witness to the power of the gospel and the mission of the Church. --from the Preface James M. Gordon is Principal of the Scottish Baptist College, Paisley, Scotland. He is also the author of 'James Denney (1856-1917)' in the series Studies in Evangelical History and Thought.
