Radical Holiness

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the concept of radical holiness. It defines the adjectives plainfolk and radical. Radical holiness is examined based on key behavioral and valuational indexes to capture its personality and temperament, and locate it on the spectrum of enthusiasm for and appropriation of values associated with modernism. It then addresses countervailing tendencies within radical holiness that qualify its characterization as plainfolk modernism.

Keywords: radical holiness; plainfolk; modernism
