This chapter focuses on American evangelicals and the affirmation of their normativity. It begins by discussing a brief historical background of the evangelicals and the impact of Cold War in their missionary work. The chapter then discusses the critique, challenge, and limits of acceptable evangelical dissent during the late 1950s and the 1960s, with a particular focus on Elisabeth Elliot's critiques of missionary attitudes and tactics. It also discusses evangelical reflections on American missionaries in Christianity Today and in Free Methodist publications during the last three decades of the twentieth century.
