Is it possible for conservative Protestant groups to survive in secular institutional settings? Here, Bramadat offers an ethnographic study of the Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship (IVCF) at McMaster University, a group that espouses fundamentalist interpretations of the Bible, women's roles, the age of the earth, alcohol consumption, and sexual ethics. In examining this group, Bramadat demonstrates how this tiny minority thrives within the overwhelmingly secular context of the University."Rejecting sterotypes of evangelicals as 'illiterate hillbillies,' he focuses 'on evangelicals' creativity in the face of the perciecved hegemony of the secular ethos.' In this way, he challenges what he calls the 'profound condescension' he has 'encountered when discussing evangelicals with liberal Christians, academics, and friends.'"--Theological Studies
