The Search for Piety and ObediencePosted: May 18, 2012
Devin Manzullo-Thomas has been great about getting the word out about my book, so I’m going to him back a little love. He just finished his master’s thesis at Temple University on the Brethren in Christ, which is an Anabaptist denomination that produced Ron Sider and other members of the evangelical left. Check out his great blog at The Search for Piety and Obedience.
Just finished eight hours of sessions at the IUPUI workshop. I’ve really enjoyed the fascinating papers on pro-life progressives, evangelical environmentalists, international trade, evangelical-Catholic networks, and many others. It’s also been great to meet both younger colleagues and famous senior scholars such as John Green, Glen Stassen, Joel Carpenter, Stephen Warner, and Laurel Kearns. One concluding comment for now: sociologists and anthropologists sure do things differently than historians!
