Pitts Theology Library’s new exhibition, Thy Kingdom Come: American Evangelicalism from George Whitefield to Contemporary Politics, will run from December 16 to March 20, 2020. This exhibition is curated by Dr. Brandon Wason and Dr. Eric Moore.


“Hasten, O LORD, that blessed Time, and let thy Kingdom come!” George Whitefield penned these words upon seeing the Savannah River in America for the first time. Whitefield would later play a formative role in the Great Awakening and, consequently, the subsequent shaping of America’s religious landscape. This exhibition not only looks at Whitefield in his eighteenth-century setting, but it also traces evangelicalism in America through the 250 years following Whitefield’s death, contextualizing its history, beliefs, and diversity. Evangelicalism is a highly participatory expression of religion that is conveyed through personal conversion, revival, fundamental beliefs, and strong convictions about God and nation. Yet defining evangelicalism is fraught with obstacles. This exhibition pushes against monolithic portrayals of evangelicalism in the media and seeks to show the significance of this movement within the broader American culture.


This exhibition runs from Pitts Theology Library's Exhibition Gallery (Level 3) is open during library hours and is free to the public. More information here.
