    Apostles of Empire is a revisionist history of the French Jesuit mission to indigenous North Americans in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, offering a comprehensive view of a transatlantic enterprise in which secular concerns were integral.

      "Apostles of Reason brings a new level of sophistication, as well as sparkling prose, to the study of modern American evangelicals. A combination of empathetic understanding and critical acumen makes this an unusually humane, as well as unusually insightful, book.". Advertising the American dream: making way for modernity, User Review - Not Available - Book Verdict This work, unlike other recent studies such as Stephen Fox's The Mirror Makers (LJ 5/15/84), focuses less on the history and more on the social context of 4/5(1).

      Apostles of Modernity shows the evolution of this civilizing mission in Algeria, and illustrates how these 40 years were decisive in shaping the principal ideological tenets in French colonization of the region. The Apostles of Doom was a decent third instalment of J.L. Langland's The Demons of Astlan series. The series is a light and fun YA coming of age fantasy story. It mixes humor, action, and even a bit of intrigue to produce a fun and relatively engaging story!/5.
