Thank-you to Christopher Gehrz, Chair of the History Department at Bethel University, for sharing the following job announcement with the Emerging Scholars Network. As you may remember Christopher Gehrz edited The Pietist Vision of Christian Higher Education: Forming Whole and Holy Persons (InterVarsity Press, 2014). In spring 2015, Tom had the opportunity to hear Chris present on Does Pietism Offer a ‘Usable Past’ to Churches Today? at Messiah College. Looking forward to connecting with him further on this topic. Stay tuned. . . .
