I have selected some representative figures of the Liberal Protestantism of the late nineteenth, early twentieth centuries to illustrate the Liberal Protestant enthusiastic embrace of the theory of evolution. The first of these thinkers is the Scottish lay theologian Henry Drummond (1851–1897). Drummond was a layperson and a scientist.

The Great Awakening and Wesleyanism can be seen as expressions of Pietism (Barbour 1997, 41– 42).
