My friend Crawford Gribben has just published this book
In it he argues that the massive cultural impact of premillennial dispensationalism in the USA, as seen for example in the 60 million plus Left Behind books sold, reflects a gulf between many (by no means all) evangelicals in America and evangelicals in Europe (where dispensationalism is much more sceptically viewed). Such a fissure represents a
‘bankruptcy of evangelical identity, in that it marked the growing differences between the American and European religious habits of mind and among American evangelicals themselves, and that it provoked a backlash, and, in the later 1990s, a struggle for the destiny of the movement. At the end of the twentieth century, the dominance of one variety of evangelical millennialism could not but provide for its ultimate deconstruction.
