Evangelicalism nearsighted: A response to Melani McAlister

Research output: Contribution to journalLetterpeer-review


The author comments on the essay of Melani McAlister on the U.S. evangelical "enchanted internationalism," as a genuine gift. He questions the constitution of internationalism in contemporary U.S. evangelical culture. He relates that evangelicals are often approached as "others" within the American academy. He notes that McAlister has succeeded in moving beyond the "othering" while maintaining an affective critical perspective on her subject.
