The 2014 Annual Meeting of the Brethren in Christ Historical Society

Worthy-of-the-Calling-2Last night, the Brethren in Christ Historical Society released Worthy of the Calling, a book of biographies to which I contributed a full-length biography of Luke and Doris Keefer.

Readers of The Search for Piety and Obedience know that I’ve been working on this project for a long, long time. I realized at last night’s even that it’s been almost four years — just slightly less time than I’ve been married to my wife! It’s certainly the most consuming project I’ve undertaken thus far in my career, and it’s gratifying to see the finished product in print, finally.

Here are a few pictures from last night’s event, most of them borrowed from the Brethren in Christ Historical Society Facebook page. (Since I was part of the program, I didn’t have much time to snap photos!)
