BBQ With Houston Religious Historians and Bloggers

By the time you read this I will be on my way home after spending a couple of days in Houston.  Stay tuned for posts on my experience, but in the meantime here is a picture of a group of Houston American religious historians and bloggers enjoying some Texas BBQ.  It was a great night of conversation.  We discussed everything from blogging to the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg and from the history of African-American evangelicalism to new books in the field of American religion.  Some of the guys even tried to convince me to return to a stalled and half-baked project on fundamentalist preacher Carl McIntire. Maybe.
