Don Akenson publishes new book

Professor Don Akenson recently published a new book, The Americanization of the Apocalypse: Creating America's Own Bible (Oxford University Press, 2023). 

The Americanization of the Apocalypse is the first book to document, using direct archival evidence, the creation of the ur-text of modern American evangelicalism, The Scofield Reference Bible, and examines the ways that the rise of modern American evangelicalism is actually a transnational story. 

Congratulations, Dr. Akenson!
