I arrived in the quiet Ohio town of Bluffton this afternoon for the biennial meeting of the Conference on Faith and History. Today was devoted to the undergraduate conference–a great opportunity for college students and recent college graduates to present their work. (I hope my Messiah College students are taking note of this opportunity!). This evening the academics arrive. We will be treated to a lecture by Calvin College’e Joel Carpenter: “The Christian Historian in an Age of World Christianity.” Tomorrow begins a full slate of panels and sessions.
