Evangelicalism and the Culture of Extroversion

“…meaningful change will come slowly to a religious culture that sees extroversion not only as a personality trait but also as an indicator of virtue. Righteous behavior is not so much the good we do behind closed doors when no one is there to praise us; it is what we “put out into the world.”…so have many evangelicals come to associate godliness with sociability.”
