The article discusses the evangelicalism in the U.S. According to the author, the resurgence of evangelicalism in American religious life can be measured by the attention it gets from the secular media. The author compares the evangelical stories of year 1976 and 2005. Newsweek magazine features 1976 as "The Year of the Evangelicals" and Time magazine published "America's twenty-five most influential evangelicals" for the year 2005.
