More Books to Consider

Bill Tammeus has reviewed a number of outstanding new releases. Check out his thumbnail sketches and be prepared to head to Amazon.

Two books particularly caught my attention. The first is Richard Hughes' Christian America and the Kingdom of God. Richard, now at Messiah College and formerly at Pepperdine University, is an astute historian and one of the most knowledgeable Stone-Campbell scholars in the country. I had the pleasure of getting to know Richard many long years ago when we attended the same church in Springfield, Missouri.

The second book, The Future of Faith,is by retired Harvard professor Harvey Cox. Cox believes that fundamentalism around the world is dying and sees spirituality replacing formal religion.
