Born Again

This chapter focuses on the period between 1920 and 1953, from the aftermath of the March First Independence Movement to the end of the Korean War. Despite the turbulent events that took place in Korea during this period, evangelicalism persisted; conversion was continually emphasized, and revivals were regularly held throughout the country. However, it was hardly possible for evangelicalism to carry on without being affected by the sociopolitical circumstances of the period. How did evangelicalism interact with the societal forces that dominated Korea in this period? What impact did that interaction have on the way evangelicalism related to the collective and individual experiences of the Korean people? What impact did it have on the mood of the revivals of the period? The chapter addresses these questions by examining three themes: conflict, introversion, and a tradition of Korean revivalists.
