MacCulloch not only brings a lifetime's learning to bear on his subject, but writes with vigour, empathy and wit ... about identity and memory, about the importance of myths and why historians need to challenge them. -- Malcolm Gaskill * Financial Times * All Things Made New is a serious book on a serious subject. It is written with elegance and sometimes donnish wit -- Robert Tombs * The Times * MacCulloch is ... able to write authoritatively and engagingly on a remarkably diverse range of topics in the history of Christian culture and thought. -- Peter Marshall * Literary Review *
