Religious historians and Civil War readers will find this an important book and should read it.--Register of Kentucky Historical Society [The Civil War as a Theological Crisis] was deeply satisfying and profoundly disturbing at the same time.

This slim work of history is surprisingly timely.--Publishers Weekly The description, contextualization, and analysis of various viewpoints is comprehensive and profound.--Journal of the Illinois State Historical Society Mark Noll has for several decades been leading an effort to take seriously the religious and theological complexities of America's antebellum and Civil War experience. This concise book . . . both summarizes this scholarship and, in several important respects, advances the conversation.--The Journal of Religion [A] well-written and insightful work. . . . Noll makes every word count.--BYU Studies The book's particular force derives from its broad perspective. . . .

[A] masterful analysis of Civil War-era religion.--American Historical Review In The Civil War as a Theological Crisis, Mark A. Noll breaks new ground on pre-war theological disputes over slavery in scripture and on contemporary discussions of the providential character of the war.--Southern Partisan A distinctive piece of Civil War scholarship. . . . This slim set of lectures greatly enhances the study of religion's role in the American Civil War and the study of Christian intellectual life during a crucial period of U.S. history. Scholars in both fields will profit especially from its pioneering research into Christian Europe's varied reactions to the American Iliad and its causes. Advanced students and discerning general readers will appreciate the book's lively prose and its suggestive conclusions.--Civil War Book Review Noll has opened up a new, theological understanding of war.--Alabama Review
