  • Religiöse Sucher in der Moderneby Astrid Schweighofer

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 196.00

    Around 1900, numerous conversions from Judaism to Christianity took place in Vienna. Most notable for predominantly Catholic Vienna was the number of individuals that found their way to the Protestant Church. What was their motivation in taking this step? The study examines the religious biographies of major figures in fin-de-siècle Vienna, illuminating... more...

  • Liberating Mission in Mozambiqueby Robert Faris

    The Lutterworth Press 2015; US$ 38.00

    This work is a significant contribution to the narrative of Christianity in southern Africa within the framework of the struggle for liberation from colonial rule.

  • Nazism, Liberalism, and Christianityby Kenneth C. Barnes

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 40.00

    The Great Depression devastated the economies of both Germany and Great Britain. Yet the middle classes in the two countries responded in vastly different ways.

  • Design in Puritan American Literatureby William J. Scheick

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Puritan American writers faced a dilemma: they had an obligation to use language as a celebration of divine artistry, but they could not allow their writing to become an iconic graven image of authorial self-idolatry. In this study William Scheick explores one way in which William Bradford, Nathaniel Ward, Anne Bradstreet, Urian Oakes, Edward Taylor,... more...

  • Religious Rite and Ceremony in Milton's Poetryby Thomas B. Stroup

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Milton, the arch-Puritan and outspoken critic of the stereotyped rituals of the established churches, has been regarded by most scholars as a writer who is unlikely to have employed liturgical materials in his poetry. Thomas B. Stroup shows to the contrary that Milton made extensive use of Christian liturgy not only as material within the body of... more...

  • Salvation and the Savageby Robert F. Jr. Berkhofer

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The great, pre-Civil War attempt of Protestant missionaries to Christianize Native Americans is found by Robert F. Berkofer, Jr. to be a significant point of contact with enduring lessons for American thought. The irony displayed by this relationship, he says, did not really lie in the disparity between Anglo-Saxon ideals and the actual treatment... more...

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

  • Crusaders Against Opiumby Kathleen L. Lodwick

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    Opium addiction in China during the closing decades of the Ch'ing dynasty afflicted all segments of society.
