Professor Peter Lineham has for many years written and lectured extensively on the religious history of New Zealand, although his earliest work, still continuing, was on the 18th and 19th century history of British Protestant sects. His recent work has focused on broader trends in contemporary religion although he has not lost his fascination with the nineteenth-century adjustment of religion within New Zealand.
Peter’s most recent book is “Destiny: the Life and Times of a Self-made Apostle”. He is currently engaged in various projects on new religious movements in New Zealand, and on Brethren, Protestant, Evangelical and Anglican history.
