I enjoyed the first lecture, thank you very much. What I found especially interesting where your comments about defining what evangelical actually means. Being born and raised in Germany, I was not aware of the fact that evangelical has become such a slippery term in North America, or as you put it, a “catchall” for all sorts of things. What you said is true that “evangelical” is pretty clearly defined in my European context. However, I was surprised to hear that you would also include liberal Protestantism under the umbrella of evangelical. In spiritual background I was raised in, (Schwäbischer Pietismus), and on a grass-roots level, we would not refer to liberal Protestants as evangelicals but rather as “Bible critics”.
