Hanciles and Associate Professor of History of Religions and Interfaith Studies Deanna Ferree Womack, have recently been recognized on book lists as must-reads for scholars and clergy.

Hanciles’ new book Migration and the Making of Global Christianity (Eerdmans, 2021) was named a May Book of the Month by Church History: Studies in Christianity and Culture, a publication of the American Society of Church History. The publication staff selects ten to fifteen books each month to raise awareness around recent books focused on the history of Christianity, highlighting diverse time periods and geographical regions.

Womack’s most recent book, Neighbors: Christians and Muslims Building Community (Westminster John Knox, 2020), has been selected by the Academy of Parish Clergy as one of its Top Ten Recommended Books for Ministry for 2021, which are chosen based on their “excellence and helpfulness to clergy.”
