The Big Ten

This will it be for a couple of days, while I spend the weekend preparing for the launch of new look Pietist Schoolman. (In place of a That Was The Week That Was, I’ll post some links on the blog’s Facebook page.) Meanwhile, take a look back at the ten most-read posts in July: In Dubiis Libertas: Opening Up … Continue reading


  • 7/30/15 - Our penultimate episode in season 1 of The Pietist Schoolman Podcast features Dan Hanson offering a Lutheran (and a student's) perspective on higher education.

Download the episode from iTunes and read more at The Christian Humanist. Remember that you can keep up with all that's happening on the podcast by liking its page on Facebook.
  • 7/16/15 - My speaking schedule for the second half of 2015 is starting to fill up rapidly! Starting on Sunday, August 9th, when I preach/teach at Zion Covenant Church in Ellsworth, Wisconsin (9:00 and 10:45). Thanks to Pastor Dave Hugare for inviting me back to a church that I used to visit every summer during stays on my grandparents' farm!
  • 6/26/15 - Look who's taking over C-SPAN: it's Pietist Schoolman guest-blogger Jared Burkholder, speaking about religious pacifists during the American Revolution. Jared points to the diversity in responses from the Moravians, Mennonites, Brethren, and other "peace church" traditions — several rooted in Pietism. (Incidentally, I had wondered aloud about this topic way back in a 2012 blog post — glad to circle back to it.)
