Last night I led book discussion of Was America Founded as a Christian Nation: A Historical Introduction at Aaron’s Books, a great little independent bookstore in downtown Lititz, PA. If you are in the area you should definitely stop by and check it out. The audience was small (about 12) and the setting was intimate, but I am becoming increasing convinced that these are the kind of events where I can really spend quality time exploring some of the questions at the heart of my book.
Next week I head to the Midwest. On Monday night (March 28) I am lecturing at Wheaton College (IL). My lecture is entitled, “The Moral Responsibility of the Historian and the Case for Christian America” and is being sponsored by the Center for Applied Christian Ethics.
Then it is off to Minneapolis-St. Paul to do a series of lectures sponsored by the MacLaurin Institute at the University of Minnesota. Here is my schedule. If you are in the area, I hope to see you.
11:00am: Chapel at Northwestern College in St. Paul
2:00pm: Early American History Workshop at the University of Minnesota
7:00pm: Lecture at First Covenant Church in St., Paul: “The Religion of the Founding Fathers”
11:30am: Lunch with University of Minnesota campus ministers
3:00: Lecture at the MacLaurin Institute: “Was America Founded as a Christian Nation?”
7:00: Lecture at City Life Church, St. Paul: “Religion and the American Revolution”
First Cov. St. Paul? I grew up in a Covenant church on the other side of the river. Nice gig.
