    Why did it take an American to evangelize? Was it because the CofE hierarchy was losing its Christian focus at that time, on the one hand beset by ever increasing liberalism, and on the other hand diverting its attention to absurdly relaxing the moral laws in the name of liberalism, which only led to a declining attendance. Only a small percentage of those who attended Harringay were converted, says Callum Brown in his book, ''The Death of Christian Britain.'' A big noise, some fruit - very welcome, but it seems the structual issues with English church life were never remedied. For that a homegrown solution was needed but was not provided.
