Today I have some exciting news. I just signed my first book contract (I'm trying not to shout that). Oxford University Press is going to publish my dissertation under the working title:
A Place at the Table:
George Eldon Ladd and the Rehabilitation of Evangelical Scholarship in America
The manuscript is due on 1st September, so I'll be wrapping it up during our vacation in California this summer. There isn't much writing to do--mostly I just need to format it for the editors at OUP.
So many of you listened patiently over the last few years as I worked out this story in my head. Family members, friends, colleagues at Union Rescue Mission, Fuller Seminary and the Presbyterian Foundation, and especially our small group at Glendale Presbyterian Church--all of you have been such good friends during this process. This is one of many times I plan to say thank you to you all.
Anyway, that's my news. Back to the regular postings below.
