About the Author

Thomas Albert Howard currently holds the Stephen Phillips Chair in history and is director of the Jerusalem & Athens Forum at Gordon College in Wenham, Massachusettes. He is the author of Religion and the Rise of Historicism and Protestant Theology and the Making of the Modern German University, winner of the Lilly Fellows Program Book Award for 2007. He is also the editor of The Future of Christian Learning: An Evangelical and Catholic Dialogue by Mark Noll and James Turner.


`Howard's style is lively and precise...the rich detail of the text, its sure analysis, and masterful treatment of multiple figures assures the admiration and gratitude of many readers. ' Paul Dafydd Jones, Journal of the American Academy of Religion `This book is an impressive feat of scholarship, which is unlikely to be bettered. ' Mark D. Chapman, Journal of Theological Studies `This is a carefully organized, clearly written study. Using a wide range of primary sources and citing historical studies from the nineteenth century to the present, it provides insights into the intellectual context of German theology in the nineteenth century. It is a nice example of the benefits of drawing together two areas of study that otherwise go their separate ways. ' Darrell Jodock, Lutheran Quarterly
