It will be a busy September. In addition to the start of classes, I will be doing some talks and lectures on Was America Founded as a Christian Nation and other topics. If you are in the area, stop by and say hello!
On September 16th, I will be at Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana. I have the privilege of being there 2011 Constitution Day speaker. I will give a chapel talk followed by an evening lecture sponsored by the college’s Lyceum Series on Faith and the Academy.
On the weekend of September 23-25 I will be up in Fort Ticonderoga speaking on the religious beliefs of the founding fathers at the Fort’s annual Seminar on the American Revolution.
The following weekend, September 29-30, I will be at Georgetown University in D.C. giving an address on the history of evangelical and politics to the members of Catholic and Evangelicals for the Common Good. I believe that this is a closed meeting.
My other big task for the fall, in addition to teaching and chairing the Messiah College History Department, is to complete my newest book project: “The Power to Transform: A Christian Reflection on the Study of the Past.” If all goes well, I hope it will appear sometime in late 2012 with Baker Academic.
