With impressively clear prose and a superb command of history, best-selling author Randall Balmer offers a spirited history of evangelical Christianity in the United States. Effortlessly situating developments in evangelicalism in their wider historical context, he demonstrates the ways American social and cultural settings influenced the course of the evangelical tradition. By revealing the four key moments in the movement's history, he ably demonstrates how American Evangelicalism is truly American. Concluding with a manifesto directing where evangelicalism must go from here forth, Balmer's The Making of Evangelicalism will interest every reader--evangelical, mainline, secular--who wants to better understand evangelicals today.

After the Reformation, the Marrow Controversy of the eighteenth century is noted as one of the most significant and defining events in the Scottish church. However, until now, there has not been a serious analysis of the theology of the Marrow Men as it relates to churches in Scotland during the aftermath of the controversy. In this important study, William vanDoodewaard identifies characteristic understandings of Marrow theology on the atonement, saving faith, and the free offer of the gospel and traces them out in the theology of the Seceder tradition. In doing so, he presents substantial evidence for the continuity of Marrow theology in the Associate Presbytery and Associate Synod in Scotland during the eighteenth century. He ably demonstrates that while Marrow theology was not the primary cause of the Secession churches, the Seceders were aware of the significance of Marrow theology and consciously made it an integral part of their churches.

Martin Buber s life and work is thoroughly examined in this
handy and readable book. It is part of the classic "Makers of the
Modern Theological Mind" series, recently made available again
with new paperback cover designs.

" Because Martin Buber lived, there is more love in the world than there
would have been without him. And for him that was the reason above
all others for the gift of life. New York Times"

The writings of the Jewish religious thinker, Martin Buber
(1878 1965), have had a significant influence on a number of
Christian theologians. In this overview, Stephen Panko provides a
penetrating insight into the many facets of Buber and his work.

Buber s idea of true life as relation was expressed in his famous
book "I and Thou," in which he asserted that we can only become
a personal I when we treat others, nature, and God as a Thou
rather than an impersonal it. Buber s work became widely known
in Christian circles and his concept of I-Thou relationships was
adopted by Christian theologians Karl Barth, Emil Brunner, Rudolf
Bultmann, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and Friedrich Gogarten among
others.

The "Makers of the Modern Theological Mind" series remains a must read
for anyone eager to understand these theologians and their
impact on today s church.

The voyage of the 'Pilgrim Father' from Plymouth, England, and their settlement in Plymouth, New England, is iconic. Unfortunately. Why unfortunately? Because icons both simplify and glamorize. The Mayflower story is a gilded myth, a historical episode seen through the distorting lens of nationalism. Of all the accounts of New World colonization in the 16th/17th centuries this is the one that has come to typify those qualities today's US citizens admire and believe their nation stands for. The 102 men, women and children who made that journey in the autumn of 1620 would not have recognized themselves in the heroes and heroines portrayed in films and romantic novels over the last century or so. In Mayflower Pilgrims Derek Wilson strips away the over-painting from the icon in order to discover who the Pilgrim 'Fathers' (a term not invented until 1840) were, and to explain them against the background of the age in which they lived. He does this by exploring a series of probing questions, each of which narrows the focus until the travelers on the storm-tossed Mayflower stand before us clearly delineated.

In the mid-nineteenth century, Dundee was gradually establishing itself as Scotland's third-largest city, with a rapidly expanding economy. What most attracted observers' attention, however, was the religious revival that began in the Fall of 1839 under the leadership of two relatively young and inexperienced ministers, Robert Murray McCheyne (1813"€"1843) and William Chalmers Burns (1815"€"1868). In McCheyne's Dundee, historian Bruce McLennan ably traces the story of revival in this industrial Scottish seaport. After looking at the social and economic conditions of the city, as well as the significant religious issues of the day, he then considers McCheyne and Burns"€"their backgrounds, their brief ministries in Dundee, and their impact as God's instruments of great spiritual blessing to the people of that city. McLennan concludes with an analysis of the reactions to the revival"€"both approbation and opposition"€" and the awakening's long-term effects, which could still be seen a generation la

    The essays in this volume pose the question common usage has obscured: was the Enlightenment truly enlightened or enlightening? Scholarly investigation has sometimes avoided the question by confining itself to historical particulars of 18th-century Europe. Yet the most visible proponents of the Enlightenment, the philosophers, insisted that their project originated a century earlier, in the writings of the first self-proclaimed modern philosophers. This volume seeks philosophical clarity of modernity's enlightenment by beginning with Bacon, Descartes and Hobbes. Consideration of Pascal, Spinoza, Leibniz, Hume, Roussea, Lessing and Kant - all philosophical critics, or reformers, of the Enlightenment - furthers the study of its legacy by displaying its diversity. Finally, the book indicates the Enlightenment's vitality by outlining ways it continues to hold philosophical sway in this century.

    This unique book is an exploration of Christianity alongside Jewish guides who are well-studied in and sympathetic to Christianity, but who remain "near Christianity."Reflecting on his journeys within biblical studies and contemporary Jewish-Christian dialogue, Anthony Le Donne illustrates not only the value but also the necessity of continued Jewish friendship for the Christian life. With the help of Jewish friends and mentors, he presents a deeper and more complex Christian faith, offering readers a better vision of the beauty and genius of Christianity, but also an honest look at its warts and failings. Weaving his own story and personal conversations with Jewish friends, Le Donne, a respected scholar and published author, models how his fellow Christians can avoid blurring the differences between Christianity and Judaism on the one hand and exaggerating them on the other.
