If so, I would love to hear from you and learn how the book works in the undergraduate classroom. So far I have received positive feedback from professors who have used The Way of Improvement Leads Home in U.S. Survey courses, colonial America and American Revolution courses, American religious history courses, and graduate history courses. I even heard about it being used in a doctoral course on biography.
I taught it for the first time this semester in my American Revolution class and the students seemed very engaged with the character of Philip Vickers Fithian. In the process they may have learned something about the Enlightenment and its relation to the Revolution.
And if you are close enough to Harrisburg, PA (or have a big travel budget) I would love to consider coming to your campus to talk with your students about the book.
Ditto for Confessing History: Explorations in Christian Faith and the Historian’s Vocation. I know this book is already being used a few places this semester.
