Welcome to the personal website and blog of Chris Gehrz, professor of history at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota and author of The Pietist Option: Hope for the Renewal of Christianity (coming this September from InterVarsity Press).
I blog here about three times a week, plus a Saturday links post. I write about Christianity, history, and education, as well as their intersections (e.g., Christian colleges, methods in teaching history). I tend to approach things historically, but occasionally comment on current events — with crises in higher ed and evangelical views on sexuality being particularly popular the last couple years.
I’m glad you asked: click the links to learn more!
