On Writing the History of the American Bible Society--Update #78

I got some good news about the ABS project today.  More on that in a future post.

The meeting of the Conference on Faith and History in Malibu is now in full swing.  It is good to see old friends and make new ones.  But as I mentioned in yesterday's post, all of this conferencing is not conducive to writing.  I knew that I would not make progress on the project this weekend, but I am not giving up on my commitment to try to at least do something to advance the manuscript while I am soaking up the Malibu sun.

With that in mind, I spent an hour this morning revising and editing Chapter Four.  I was working on a section in which I explore the grass roots dimensions of the ABS effort to provide, between 1829-1831, a Bible to every American family.

And now off to the conference.
