This chapter tells the story of the creation of The Fundamentals, the conflict and contingencies that shaped the project, and the methodology for creating the ad hoc “orthodoxy” that resulted thereof. The early twentieth century saw the encroaching influence of modernity introduced into the faith, and attempts to address the issue culminated in the development of a new theological product, as marketed by Henry Crowell himself. It would be a modern orthodoxy compatible across denominations and rooted in an evangelical orientation. More importantly, it would act as a permanent solution to the still-nagging question of why an institution like the Moody Bible Institute was needed. The project, eventually known as The Fundamentals, aimed to change the face of Protestantism in the United States.

Keywords:   The Fundamentals, orthodoxy, modernity, twentieth century, Henry Parsons Crowell, Moody Bible Institute, Protestantism
