Despite its a-cultural claims, evangelicalism, as a movement, has been profoundly shaped by its changing cultural environments.

These novels share a common set of tropes with other ‘rapture novels’, but their negotiation with the demands of genre and dispensational theology illustrate the significance of the changing evangelical condition.
