What Coming Up in the New Year at *The Way of Improvement Leads Home*

Thanks for all of you who have encouraged us this year to keep on blogging here at The Way of Improvement Leads Home.  I appreciate all of your comments, e-mails, notes, shares, and retweets. It makes me realize that we are indeed providing a real service for people interested in thoughtful conversation about matters related to academic life, American history, politics, and Christianity.

For those of you who are interested, here are a few things you can expect in 2016:

  • We hope to unveil The Way of Improvement Leads Home's new blog/website design on December 30, 2015.  We have made the switch to WordPress.
  • We will be at the AHA in Atlanta from January 7-10 to offer our usual coverage of this massive history conference.  We are looking for more correspondents.
  • On March 18, 2016 I will be the keynote speaker at what looks like a wonderful undergraduate conference on the "Examined Life" at St. Francis University in Loretto, Pennsylvania.  Don't forget to submit a proposal or encourage your students to submit a proposal.
  • In late March, Oxford University Press will release my next book: The Bible Cause: A History of the American Bible Society.  We are working with the ABS and Oxford on publicity.  Part of the publicity will involve speaking.  If you are connected with a church, college, bookstore, library, or some other cultural institution that might be interesting in hosting an event please contact us.
  • And, of course, you can continue to expect daily blogging, our twice-weekly Author's Corner, and all of our other usual features at The Way of Improvement Leads Home.
Thanks again for your support. We may take a few days off during the Christmas holiday, so let me wish all of our readers a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year.
