About the Author

Peter J. Leithart is a senior fellow at New Saint Andrews College, Moscow, Idaho, and a pastor of Trinity Reformed Church in Moscow. He is the author of several books, including Deep Exegesis: The Mystery of Reading Scripture and Solomon Among the Postmoderns.


". . . this work should serve as a welcome redress of the often one-sided debate regarding Constantine and Constantinianism."--Britton W. Norvell, Restoration Quarterly, 55:1 (2013)
"This book is a must read for anyone assaying to deal with Constantine in the foreseeable future; it is a valuable correction of the tendentious views that frame the first Christian emperor. Leithart's work is a welcome contribution to Constantine scholarship and should find its place in responsible library collections. Scholars will want to get their own copy, and many classes will be enriched by the addition of this book to the list of required readings."--James R. Payton, Jr., Calvin Theological Journal, November 2012
"Here is an excellent scholarly and fair treatment of Constantine."--Christian News, November 15, 2010
"Leithart has written an important book that does more than help us to better understand the complex human being who bore the name of Constantine. . . As a pacifist I could not want a better conversation partner than Peter Leithart."--Stanley Hauerwas, Christian Century, October 19, 2010
"This erudite work will be of interest to academic seminarians and theologians, as well as those seeking a historically sound Christian interpretation of Constantine."--Matthew Connor Sullivan, Library Journal, December 2010
