Description

The Encyclopedia of Fundamentalism is the third volume of the Religion & Society series. With A-Z coverage of fundamentalist movements and beliefs around the world, this work offers insights into Christian fundamentalist home life, the best-selling Left Behind books, the Taliban, concepts such as Dispensationalism, and much more. The encyclopedia’s emphasis is on Protestant fundamentalism in the United States, but, in a more international sense, the volume also covers conservative religious, social, and political movements in Islam, Judaism, and Hinduism.

This volume is a companion to the Encyclopedia of Pentecostal and Charismatic Christianity, another volume in the Religion & Society series, edited by Stanley M. Burgess. Although the two movements separated early in the twentieth century, they are often confused. Side by side, these volumes explain the differences between two major religious movements of the contemporary world.
