One realisation I have not yet had time to fully explore relates to a key difference between evangelicals in the USA and those in the rest of the world. It seems that at this moment, American Evangelicals see the greatest threats to faith as primarily political; by that I mean political ideas and ideologies as well as organisations. However, outside the USA, the main challenges to faith are seen more in terms of conflicting systems of faith, or competeting demands for attention.

This radically divergent hermeneutics, we could call it a hermeneutics of anti-Christianity, makes it very difficult to focus on a problem in dialogue between the two strands of faith.

My thinking is still raw on this, but it seems worthy of more attention.
