Everyday Life After the Irish Conflict

This chapter develops the concept of an evangelical subculture in order to explore how both the politics of the post-Agreement period, as well as more mundane, everyday concerns about God, faith and life, have helped shape changes in evangelicals' personal religious practices and identities. Drawing on a body of ninety-five semi-structured interviews with evangelicals, conducted between 2002 and 2007, it explores links between macro-level political changes, micro-level subcultural changes and individual religious change. It explains how evangelicals have experienced changes that have pushed their religious journeys in six different directions: deepening in a conservative direction, moderating, transforming, converting, maintaining a steady faith and exiting evangelicalism.
