Anti-Protestantism | Gene Veith
Christian historian Philip Jenkins, now a professor at Baylor, is one of my favorite scholars. Perhaps best known for his book The New Christendom: The Coming of Global Christianity (2002), which documents the exponential rise of Christianity in the developing world, even as it declines in the once Christian West. But his multifaceted scholarship also spans from the ancient world to the First World War. (See his Amazon page to see what I mean.) When I wrote about George Herbert’s poem “The Church Militant” last week, there you go, discussion about the poem I discovered happened to have been written by Philip Jenkins!
