Abstract

The paper discusses the strategies and the rhetorical elements of the Norwegian Inner Mission during a period of political and cultural conflict - the 1920’s and 1930’s. Special attention is paid to understanding the ambivalence between premodern values and modern strategies as they were expressed by one of the leaders of one of the inner mission organisations, professor of theology Ole Hallesby (1879-1961). In his thinking, the explicit aim of the inner mission activities was the rechristianization of Norway, the means were actions organised according to the modern society, but the cultural and social ideal was the non-secularized, premodem Norway - as opposed to urban pluralism. Probably, this ambivalence made the inner mission strategy a political failure.
