Healing in the History of Christianity

By Amanda Porterfield | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

Many people contributed to this book, both directly and indirectly. Martin Marty, Brooks Holifield, Grant Wacker, Randall Balmer, Susan Graham, and other colleagues in the American Society of Church History encouraged the project as I first began to develop it. Ron Numbers also supported the project from the beginning and sent me articles I needed to read. Denis Janz, Richard Horsley, Virginia Burrus, Derek Krueger, Daniel Bornstein, Peter Matheson, and Mary Bednarowski helped me think about healing in the context of the history of Christian practice. Cynthia Read at Oxford University Press gave the manuscript a detailed reading that improved it enormously. Her knowledge of the history of Christian thought is as impressive as her insight into what makes a good book.

Paul Flesher, Carolyn Anderson, Susan Frye, Bob Torry, and other colleagues at the University of Wyoming attended to early drafts of chapters, and my colleagues at Florida State University were equally generous with their time and help. I am especially grateful to David Levenson for opening his library to me and for helping me find my way amid the voluminous scholarship concerned with Jesus and the early history of Christianity. John Kelsay gave me considerable help in strengthening the chapter on early modern Christianity.
