The period of the Renaissance and Protestant Reformation in Western Europe (the late 14th to early 17th centuries) laid the foundations for social, political, and economic systems that still dominate Europe, the Western Hemisphere, and much of the rest of the world. The Catholic Church provided the framework for intellectual inquiry and directed everyone's behavior, and even after the Protestant Reformation gained influence, social structures were informed by Christian teachings. In Heretics and Heroes, the riveting, often amusing, and thoroughly researched 6th volume of his Hinges of History series, author Thomas Cahill details how artistic expression evolved, political theorists began to question absolute monarchy, and the churches themselves were revolutionized.

Evangelist Billy Graham, now over 95 years old, is physically frail but still able to proclaim the faith he has preached for nearly 70 years. In The Reason for My Hope, Graham explains the basis of his beliefs -- the message of the Bible, specifically, the good news of the Gospels in the New Testament. Applying biblical principles to real-life situations, he contrasts contemporary social views with Christian doctrine. His down-to-earth, refreshing style makes his latest book as accessible and inspiring as his preaching has always been. Though his standards are more conservative than those of mainstream American society, his message of salvation will continue to inspire people who are looking for reason to hope.
