dc.description.abstract Carl F. H. Henry served as a key leader within the neo-evangelical movement in America during the mid-twentieth century and continued to have a prominent role in the greater evangelical movement during the rest of the century. His sociopolitical thought is an important hallmark of his career. Beginning in 1947 with his Uneasy conscience of modern fundamentalism, Henry articulated a proactive evangelical approach to society and politics that avoided fundamentalism's former disregard for social reform while remaining distinct from mainline positions. This thesis identifies aspects of realism in Henry's sociopolitical thought over the course of his career by examining his treatment of individuals, groups, structures, and systems. To help provide context to Henry's thought, this study also incorporates ideas from J. Gresham Machen's Christianity and liberalism and Reinhold Niebuhr's Moral man and immoral society. In the end, this thesis describes Henry's contribution of a "neo-evangelical realism." en
