Our membership drives always yield some nice e-mails from readers. Here is one I received yesterday from a student at the College of Southeastern in Wake Forest:
...I am currently an undergraduate history major at the College at Southeastern in Wake Forest, NC. I wanted to send you an e-mail and thank you for the work that you have produced with your blog and writing. Through the past few years I have wrestled with whether or not I made the right decision becoming a history major, and further, how my identity as a Christ-follower should affect my study. It was through coming across your blog, Office Hours, and reading Why Study History? that I saw the importance of historical study and the role of our Christian identity in such inquiry. I greatly appreciate your work and the new perspective I have gained through it.
