Mark Hutchison, of the University of Western Sydney and author of A Short History of Global Evangelicalism (2012), will be giving a public lecture at Wheaton College (IL) on January 17, 2013.
His lecture, “Writing a Global History of Evangelicalism: Lessons Learned Too Late?”, will be delivered in Blanchard Hall, room 339, for those that are in the area.
A brief description of the lecture:
How does one try to capture the expansion and development of an
ever-diversifying and evolving worldwide evangelical movement? Dr. Mark
Hutchinson, co-author (along with Dr. John Wolffe—the Open University,
UK) of the recently published A Short History of Global Evangelicalism
(Cambridge, 2012) will discuss some of the historiographic and
conceptual challenges involved in undertaking this sprawling task, as
well as some of the insights he gained in the
process. A historian at the University of Western Sydney
in Australia, Mark Hutchinson is the former director of the Centre for
the Study of Australian Christianity at Macquarie University, and the
author and editor of several books including (along with the late Ogbu
Kalu), A Global Faith: Essays on Evangelicalism and Globalization (CSAC, 1998).
