Evangelicalism vs. Fundamentalism

I need other person's thought.
Write at least 250 words.

The discussion should serve to bring out the differences between evangelicals and fundamentalists. (Focus on the separatism of Fundamentalists)

Dear Student,
Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. It is based on my own take of the issue. Remember however that this is opinion based.

The important point here is to give an opinion. You can use some of the resources I have listed to explore the topic further. If you have any questions, just let me know via the feedback section and I'll try and clarify things for you. Good luck with your studies.
