Spring 2008: Other Significant Articles


Mark Noll, “America’s Two Foundings” First Things 178 (December 2007), pages 29-34.

Historian Mark Noll argues that the religious landscape that existed at the founding of the United States underwent a dramatic change after 1800 and leading up to the Civil War. In order to clarify current discussions over religion and public life, we must recognize that the United States experienced two foundings and restrain our appeals to how history really developed.



Becky Tirabassi, “Young, Restless, and Ready for Revival: On-campus Christians are seeking holiness in unexpected numbers” Christianity Today (December 2007), pages 46-48.

Becky Tirabassi makes a report of revival among college and university students across the United States, when the “bottom falls out” and confession of sin sweeps through assemblies of students longing for real change.



Miroslav Volf, “Living with the Other” Enrichment (Summer 2007), pages 30-32, 34, 36-38,41-42, 46.
