Overview

The Mark A. Noll Collection brings together four award-winning works by this renowned historian and author. In the first two volumes, Noll argues that evangelical American Christians should participate more in intellectual scholarship, and that the Christian faith can richly enhance academic pursuits. In the second two volumes, Noll looks to the past, exploring the roots of North American Christianity. He writes about Christianity’s arrival in the New World and the development of the immigrant church. This collection is perfect for scholars, students, and anyone interested in the interaction between Christianity and North American culture.

Individual Titles

The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind

  • Author: Mark A. Noll
  • Publisher: Eerdmans
  • Publication Date: 1995
  • Pages: 284

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

In The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind, Mark Noll asks why the largest group of religious Americans—who enjoy increasing wealth, status, and political influence—have contributed so little to rigorous intellectual scholarship in North America. In nourishing believers in the simple truths of the gospel, why have evangelicals failed at sustaining a serious intellectual life and abandoned the universities, the arts, and other realms of “high” culture?

Noll is probing and forthright in his analysis of the origin and progression of this situation. Noll also sets a vision for the future, searching for resources, within evangelicalism itself, to turn this situation around.

This is a must read book. Its being named the 1995 Christianity Today Book of the Year is not undeserved. It sets the agenda for a very interesting discussion.

Southwestern Journal of Theology

A most impressive book, combining passionate engagement with careful and rational analysis.

Theology (UK)

That anti-intellectualism is not inherent in evangelicalism Noll demonstrates by presenting evangelical intellectual history, primarily in the US, with scholarly thoroughness and journalistic accessibility. . . . Noll well exemplifies what he prays evangelicals generally will learn to value again: thinking like a Christian.

Jesus Christ and the Life of the Mind

  • Author: Mark A. Noll
  • Publisher: Eerdmans
  • Publication Date: 2013
  • Pages: 192

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Jesus Christ and the Life of the Mind shows how the orthodox Christology confessed in the ancient Christian creeds, far from hindering or discouraging serious scholarship, can supply the motives, guidance, and framework for learning. Christian faith, Noll argues, can richly enhance intellectual engagement in the various academic disciplines. Noll demonstrates how this is true by applying his insights to the fields of history, science, and biblical studies.

By drawing constructively on poets, theologians, philosophers—and especially on the great historic creeds and confessions of the faith—Noll has crafted a challenging, inspiring christological philosophy of Christian education for the twenty-first century. This is a major contribution.

—David Lyle Jeffrey, distinguished professor of literature and humanities in the Honors Program, Baylor University

Noll draws on an impressive breadth of material from sources as diverse as B. B. Warfield and Vatican II. This accessible book will appeal to those interested in the idea of Christian learning and in the relationship between Christian faith and the liberal arts and sciences. . . . Recommended.

A must-read for all Christian scholars.

The Old Religion in a New World: The History of North American Christianity

  • Author: Mark A. Noll
  • Publisher: Eerdmans
  • Publication Date: 2001
  • Pages: 352

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The Old Religion in a New World: The History of North American Christianity chronicles the arrival of Christianity in the New World, tracing turning points in the development of the immigrant church that led to today’s distinctly American faith.

Taking a unique approach to this fascinating subject, Noll compares the practice of Christianity on the American continent to European Christianity, focusing on what was new about organized Christian religion in the New World. Noll provides a broad outline of the major events in the history of the North American Christian churches and also highlights some of the most important interpretive issues which arose in the transfer of Christianity from Europe to America.

What sets the book apart is the emphasis on what is American about religion in America to begin with but also the combination of comprehensive narrative and analytically reasoned treatment of such recurrent if not perennial issues like church-state relations, concepts of pluralism, or the relation, if any, of religious practice and theology. . . An eminently learned, lucid, and enlightening book.

Catholic Historical Review

Interspersed among the chapters of straightforward, well-balanced historical information are insightful interpretive essays dealing with issues like the separation of church and state. . . . Including helpful notes for further study, this clear overview of a complex subject is recommended for public and academic libraries.

Library Journal

In this well-honed survey of the history of Christianity in North America, Mark Noll puts on a virtuosic display of historical range and subtle synthesis. Few have read as widely or as deeply as Noll across the whole sweep of North American religious history, and his encyclopedic grasp of the field shows through on page after page of this volume. . . .
