Just when American political leaders and the secular press were becoming more attentive to the nation's new role as a world power, fundamentalists and other evangelicals were developing a corresponding outlook, which the emerging younger leaders were calling a “world vision.” In the wake of the Second World War, these evangelization missions were growing rapidly and new ones were being formed. This expansion would continue unabated for a generation, representing the greatest spurt of growth in the two-century career of modern missions. As both the expectancy of revival and wartime visions of America's global destiny grew, so did fundamentalists' and other evangelicals' interest in foreign missions.
