Yesterday was a productive writing day. I managed to churn out 1392 words of what is now Chapter Three. I started the chapter with a story of a local agent from the Young Men's Western Auxiliary Bible Society of Pittsburgh making a Bible distribution trip through the rural outskirts of Morgantown, Virginia in 1821.
I also began writing a section on the way the American Bible Society tried to instill a sense of national purpose in the leaders of its local auxiliary societies. Though working at the grass-roots level, these auxiliaries understood their work to be contributing to the creation of a Christian civilization.
I realize I have not written too much lately about what is happening on the publishing front. We are in limbo at the moment, but I am optimistic that good things are on the horizon. Stay tuned.
