Review

""Fighting for the Cross" will both inform and entertain students and the general public. At the same time the work is deeply grounded in the source material and current secondary literature about crusading. The fact that it covers so many topics concisely, but well, is what makes the book particularly valuable."--;i>Canadian Journal of History"--Laurence W. Marvin "Canadian Journal of History "

"Accessible to a general audience. . . . A study that succeeds in providing us with a better understanding of what the experience of crusading entailed."--Vincent Ryan, America--Vincent Ryan"America" (10/06/2008)

"Distinctive and compellingly contemporary . . . fascinating."

"Housley demonstrates an effortless familiarity with a wide variety of primary sources, iconography, and secondary literature. . . . It essentially represents the state of crusade studies in the twenty-first century. . . . Fighting for the Cross will both inform and entertain students and the general public. At the same time the work is deeply grounded in the source material and current secondary literature about crusading. The fact that it covers so many topics concisely, but well, is what makes the book particularly valuable."--;I>Canadian Journal of History--Laurence W. Marvin "Canadian Journal of History "

." . . it does a fantastic job of drawing readers into the medieval world and describing the crusades in light of that world. . . . for anyone seeking to understand the events and ethos of the crusading enterprise in the Holy Land, Fighting for the Cross is highly recommended."--Adam S./I>--Adam S. Francisco "Concordia Theological Quarterly "

Review

"[A] splendid new book about the Crusades [which] succeeds brilliantly ... [It] also draws on a staggering range of ... sources."
