Abstract
This article explores the possibility of a new Evangelical movement in the United States. Dubbed the "New Evangelicals" by members of the press, this growing number of American Christians are finding themselves somewhere between the liberal and conservative politics of the past. The author investigates the growth of this movement by arguing that at the heart of this phenomenon is a struggle to shape a "framing story" that describes transitions in their theological and political perspectives. The author will draw on a review of current literature as well as original qualitative research designed to explore the theological and ideological characteristics of this growing movement.
