New Issue of Fides et Historia

I'm enjoying reading the Winter/Spring 2013 issue of Fides et Historia. There are several articles and book reviews that I found interesting. The issue opens with Robert Tracy McKenzie's presidential address at last fall's Conference on Faith and History meeting at Gordon College, "The Vocation of the Christian Historian: Re-envisioning Our Calling, Reconnecting with the Church," followed by articles by Philip Jenkins ("A Critic in the Desert: Robert Browning and the Limits of Plain Historic Fact"), George W. Harper ("'It is a Battle-Royal': A. Z. Conrad's Preaching at Boston's Park Street Church during the Fundamentalist-Modernist Controversy"), and Daryl R. Ireland ("John Sung's Malleable Conversion Narrative").

The following book reviews caught my eye:

Alister Chapman reviews David Hempton's The Church in the Long Eighteenth Century

Colin B. Chapell reviews Catherine Brekus and W. Clark Gilpin, eds. American Christianities: A History of Dominance and Diversity

Matthew Bowman reviews Edward Blum's and Paul Harvey's The Color of Christ: The Son of God and the Saga of Race in America

Jared Burkholder reviews Thomas Kidd's American Christians and Islam: Evangelical Culture and Muslims from the Colonial Period to the Age of Terrorism

Chad Lower reviews Adrian Weimer's Martyrs' Mirror: Persecution and Holiness in Early New England

Robert Caldwell reviews Michael McClymond's and Gerald McDermott's The Theology of Jonathan Edwards

Miles Mullin reviews Darren Dochuk's From Bible Belt to Sunbelt: Plain-Folk Religion, Grassroots Politics, and the Rise of Evangelical Conservativism

Charles McCrary reviews D. G. Hart's From Billy Graham to Sarah Palin: Evangelicals and the Betrayal of American Conservativism

Colin Chapell reviews Randall Stephens's and Karl Giberson's The Anointed: Evangelical Truth in a Secular Age
