Are We in a "Great Evangelical Inflation?"
Author and pastor John Dickerson thinks that we are.

"Inflation," Dickerson argues, can be thought of more than an economic term, and when applied to large-view understandings of American religious trends, it becomes apparent that our initial numbers of "Evangelicals" are significantly overestimated.
