Abstract:

"Robert Burkinshaw traces the growth of conservative Protestantism in British Columbia from its clashes with liberal Protestants in the early twentieth century; through the post-World War II years when a bewildering variety of smaller groups, including Baptist and Pentecostal denominations as well as Mennonite, Reformed, and Evangelical Free churches, became important; to the 1970s when the majority of worshipping Protestants belonged to evangelical groups. He examines the factors that made evangelicalism more adaptable to changes in the geographic, ethnic, and social distribution of the province's population than other denominations, and argues that while the evangelical movement in B.C. was influenced by American fundamentalism, it was not simply an extension of the U.S. campaign. He also examines the impact of evangelicals on provincial politics, most particularly their role in the rise of the Social Credit Party."--Jacket.
