In talking to church groups about fundamentalism, it is necessary to take into account the particular issues that arise for Christians in facing this problem. Whereas a purely secular audience might (perhaps wrongly) assume that it stands outside the phenomenon, Christians may have an uneasy sense that, as religious believers, they are somehow involved, if unwillingly.
It is important, therefore, to make the distinction between religious belief and fundamentalism, and to show that the one does not imply the other. The following notes represent no more than one way of doing that; they are written from a position of committed Christian belief.
