I have a few weeks off before I hit the road to promote my forthcoming book (due out next month) Was America Founded as a Christian Nation?: A Historical Primer. If you are in the vicinity of any these venues I hope you might stop by and say hello.

I predict a much slimmer series of NCAA Basketball Tourney comments for 2011. You'll be lucky to catch any of the games. What a schedule! Hope you sell a million books.
Paul Harvey says
John: From what I've read Obama followed the NCAA tourney while traveling the country during the primary season in spring 08, so I expect a full complement of basketball (and of course Messiah College sports) commentary in spite of your speaking schedule
Kevin M Schultz says
I actually only get to watch sports to their culmination when on the road. Too many kids at home to get a few hours of silent TV time. Not that it's a bad trade, just is. That said, I'm not anything of the multitasker that Obama is. I am curious, though, to see how (if) you engage Noll/Marsden/Hatch book “The Search for Christian America.” Perhaps it's in the introduction?
