People of Faith Series Featured in Christian History Magazine
The ISAE is pleased to announce a new cooperative venture between the Institute and the Worcester, PA-based Christian History Institute’s Christian History magazine. The new issue of CH (#102) features articles reflecting the ISAE’s recently-released 6-part People of Faith video series on the history of Christianity in America. Articles from scholars Catherine A. Breckus (U. of Chicago Divinity School), Gary Scott Smith (Grove City College), Angela Tarángo (Trinity University), and Chris Armstrong (Bethel University) frame two of the major themes of the video series, America’s Christian diversity and the Church’s social impact. Additional features include roundtable forum discussions on each of these themes featuring such people as Scott Appleby (Notre Dame), Martin Marty (Chicago), Jennifer Graber (College of Wooster), and Randall Balmer (Barnard College), as well as historical timelines and resources for further reading. Edited by Chris Armstrong and Jennifer Woodruff Tait (Huntington University), this issue of Christian History is an ideal tool not only for personal enrichment but will serve as a valuable resource for congregations, home study groups, and for the high school and college classroom.
