This revised edition brings the story right up to the present, covering the worldwide expansion of Sydney Anglicans and Hillsong Pentecostals. While Australia has become increasingly ‘secular’, evangelicals have become more engaged than ever in politics, education and social welfare. Written in a lively, accessible, and engaging way, this story raises intriguing questions about the spiritual dimension in Australian life.
