The missionary impulse of Evangelicals has been saving souls, but that has changed in the last 40 years. Political, economic and social issues are part of the changing impetus of Evangelical engagement around the world, because of Pentecostal and Charismatic movements. This keynote will address the changes to belief, ideology and practice of Evangelical mission work, to show how Pentecostal and Charismatic movements have changed the impetus of Evangelical fervor and interests throughout the world.

Anthea Butler is Associate Professor of Religion and Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, USA.

This event is part of the international conference Global Faith and Worldly Power: Evangelical Encounters with American Empire. The lecture will be livestreamed here: Webcast of Keynote
