My review of Mark Noll’s The Civil War as a Theological Crisis is differnet from the one at Christianity Today. Check amazon.com for another view on this book.

Drew,

Good to hear, because I enjoy compiling these. It’s pretty interesting to sift through everything and pick out newsworthy and noteworthy articles, sites, and blog entries. I like it too because I’m finding some history-related blogs I never knew existed before now.

“the history of violence, war and nationalism that are useful to us as historians and as critical thinkers about the contemporary United States.”

This is about as good a reason as I can see to NOT read a book.
