I’m an author and historian based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I hold a Ph.D. in U.S. History from the University of Notre Dame. My first book examined the forebears of a religious group we call “evangelicals” today. Much of my research and writing has dealt with related topics. I am currently researching a second project on Progressive-Era Protestant Liberals, thanks to a generous grant from the Louisville Institute.
I proudly serve on the Grand Rapids Historical Commission and have a growing interest and appreciation for the history of my adopted hometown. I occasionally teach at colleges in the area, both in-person and online.
I am also in the early stages of an initiative designed to increase the accessibility and circulation of religion scholarship. More on this to come.
