Book DescriptionFrom Meetinghouse to Megachurch is a superb account, from the perspective of material and cultural history, of the rise of the evangelical megachurch-a church architecturally designed to attract a large following. In 1970, there were onlyten megachurches. By the mid 1990s, however, megachurches numbered around four hundred, representing nearly 2 percent of the Protestant churches in the United States. In this new study, Anne C. Loveland and Otis B. Wheeler demonstrate that evangelical megachurches evolved from multiple models and influences. Lavishly illustrated with more than 150 images, From Meetinghouse to Megachurch fills a significant gap in the historiography of evangelical religion in the United States.
