The most comprehensive coverage ever written of the influence of hymns on the lives and administrations of America's presidents. Each chapter begins with a concise presentation of each president's path to the White House and his accomplishments and failures as president, then how each president regarded music, whether or not he was musical, and music in the White House during each president's administration. These hymns may be related to developments in the life of the president including his spiritual journey, major decisions he had to make as president, or even his selection of the inaugural Scripture.

The Biblical Rembrandt presents Rembrandt in the context of his faith. That faith can be studied only by an intense look at his paintings, etchings, and drawings depicting biblical persons, scenes, and moments. About Rembrandt’s life, we know very little that is certain, but he has left us abundant testimony of his sensitive reading of the Bible.

A critical review of the Left Behind series, plus one of the Left Behind: The Kids series, and the first book in Babylon Rising. All three series presume that a theological system called pre-millennial dispensationalism is correct. Ultimately, this work suggests that the theological premises set forth in the series are at best dubious.

As the most comprehensive study of Thoreau’s spirituality from a Christian perspective, The Spiritual Journal of Henry David Thoreau is the first to seriously examine connections between Thoreau’s religious practices and those of his Protestant forebears. While a few writers have considered the relation between Thoreau’s thought and Christian doctrine, this book instead outlines the links between Thoreau’s religious practices (such as keeping a spiritual journal, studying nature, and walking) and those of earlier New England Protestants.
