What would it take to produce a 3,000-entry encyclopedia of a movement as diverse and ephemeral as American evangelicalism? A lot of ambition and more than a little audacity. In other words, it would take Randall Balmer. Balmer is a religious historian at Barnard College who has authored several books on American evangelicalism, such as his travelogue, Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory: A Journey into the Evangelical Subculture in America (1989). But he is most popularly known for hosting the PBS television series based on that book, where his rugged, chiseled facial features and blow-dried blond hair earned him, in the words of a friend of mine, at least a shot at the title of the handsomest man in Christendom.
