The Age of Reason covers 1570-1789, an era in which events such as the French Revolution and movements such as the Enlightenment spawned religious, cultural and political upheavals that have not ceased to reverberate. The text explores the conflicts between Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox Christianity, as well as schisms within those groups. The rise of sectarianism and Pietism, the spread of the faith to various regions of the globe, and the impact of the Great Awakening all played a large role in shaping the context for today's global church and its quest for relevance in a rapidly changing world.
For more than a decade Dr Pearse taught history at London College of Theology. He is currently Assistant Professor of History at Houghton College, New York. He is author of 'Why the Rest Hates the West'.
