The Pietist Schoolman

The website and blog of historian Chris Gehrz

Exploring Christianity, history, education, and how they intersect

Welcome to the personal website and blog of Chris Gehrz, professor of history at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota and author of Charles Lindbergh: A Religious Biography of America’s Most Infamous Pilot (Eerdmans, 2021).

Both here and three Tuesdays a month at The Anxious Bench, I blog about Christianity, history, education, and their intersections. I also write beyond this blog, record podcasts, and speak at churches and colleges. To learn more, you can follow me on Facebook or Twitter, or e-mail me.

Oh, and why “The Pietist Schoolman“? Or why a Caravaggio painting at the top of this page?

I’m glad you asked: click the links to learn more!
