My name’s Chris Gehrz. I’m associate professor of history and chair of the Department of History at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota, where I also help coordinate the Christianity and Western Culture program. While my training is in the history of international relations and 20th century Europe, I teach about everything from human rights to the Reformations. (One of the virtues of teaching in a smaller department in a smaller university. See more on my educational background and teaching portfolio at the “About Me” page on our department blog.)
In recent years I’ve taken a left turn into researching and writing about Pietist models of Christian higher education. I’m also the co-editor of The Pietist Impulse in Christianity, published by Wipf & Stock..
