    NYU Press 2015; US$ 22.95

    The phenomenal growth of Pentecostalism and evangelicalism around the world in recent decades has forced us to rethink what it means to be religious and what it means to be global.

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 196.00

By examining different genres and textual compilations (at times, synoptic), this volume reveals the diversity of this literature and... more...

  • Ungläubiges Staunenby Navid Kermani

    C.H. Beck 2015; Not Available

    Was geschieht, wenn einer der bedeutendsten deutschen Schriftsteller, der selbst ein Muslim ist, sich in die christliche Bildwelt versenkt?

  • Church and People in the Medieval West, 900-1200by Sarah Hamilton

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 39.95

    During the middle ages, belief in God was the single more important principle for every person, and the all-powerful church was the most important institution. It is impossible to understand the medieval world without understanding the religious vision of the time, and this new textbook offers an approach which explores the meaning of this in day-to-day... more...

  • Resilient Reformerby Timothy F. Lull; Derek R. Nelson

    Fortress Press 2015; US$ 43.99

    This biography, begun by Timothy F. Lull prior to his death and capably finished by Derek Nelson, is marked for its fresh, winsome, and invigorating style?one undoubtedly shaped by years spent in undergraduate and seminary classrooms.

  • Der Reformator Martin Luther 2017by Heinz Schilling

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 98.00

    There is broad historical awareness for Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation in Germany, Europe, and the ?West? as a whole, but given the persistent myths about the persona and work of this reformer, there is a need for a radical re-historicization of Luther and his reception. This compendium seeks to stimulate such a reevaluation... more...
