That the book’s foreword comes from Mark Noll should surprise no one. This new history text forms essentially an American Christianity installment within Noll’s Turning Points universe, established by his ubiquitous book, Turning Points: Decisive Moments in the History of Christianity. In Turning Points in American Church History, Elesha J. Coffman of Baylor University offers 13 events, ranging from the 1588 defeat of the Spanish Armada to Roger Williams’ banishment in 1635 to the Scopes Trial in 1925 to the 1980 presidential election of Ronald Reagan. As the book’s forbearer does on a global scale, Coffman suggests that each of these moments reshape part of the American Christian identity and experience.
