20th Century's Biggest Change in Evangelicalism

What are the biggest changes you see in evangelicalism in the last century?

Notable evangelicals aside, of course. I don't know the history of all of this, and I know the Methodists have been much more balanced than many others, but when I came of age the voices that were rattling the evangelical cage about developing a social conscience included Jim Wallis and Ronald Sider and Tony Campolo. There are others, and I would say the Moral Majority and Religious Right must be included in the development of a social conscience, but these come to mind for me.
