Philip Jenkins rivals Karen Armstrong as a writer who can take some of the most complex topics of religious history and make them accessible without dumbing them down.I noted the publication of The Crucible of Faith here. Besides being a prolific writer of scholarly books, Professor Jenkins is a contributor to the Anxious Bench Blog. PaleoJudaica cites his posts there frequently.
Adding to his line of smart, informative books is the new Crucible of Faith: The Ancient Revolution That Made Our Modern Religious World. I interviewed the Baylor historian about the new book. — JKR
