This epilogue examines Korean evangelicalism in the last decade of the twentieth century. In the 1990s, Korean evangelicalism underwent a more ambiguous and troubling development. On the one hand, it had become the most influential religion in South Korean society—in politics, the economy, and civil society. But its success had come with a cost: evangelicalism was beleaguered by a variety of problems, including a stalemate in its growth, shortcomings of its leaders, and conflicts with other religions. A great many Koreans sought a new moral order—a salvation—and expected to find it in the evangelical church. Evangelicals of today may want to ponder whether such expectation has been met. Whatever the result of such pondering, it is clear that evangelicalism is not only in Korean society but also of it.
