My blog posts revolve around my interests and vocation as a historian: the intersection of history and contemporary church life, the intersection of history and contemporary politics, serendipitous discoveries in archives or on research trips, publications and research projects, upcoming conferences, and speaking engagements.
I also blog for two other organizations, the Canadian Baptist Historical Society and the Centre for Post-Christendom Studies.
The views expressed in these blogs represent the views of the authors, and not necessarily those of any organizations with which they are associated.

Today I presented a paper entitled "'The accursed partnership of Turk and Teuton': American Churches and the Armenian Genocide". The paper examines the reaction of American churches in the First World War to the devastation of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire.
If you would like read the research in more detail, see my chapter in The Globalization of Christianity: Implications for Christian Ministry and Theology.
For an analysis of how Canadian churches responded to the genocide, see my chapter in Canadian Churches and the First World War.
For the implications of the genocide for the teaching of global Christianity, see my article in McMaster Journal of Theology and Ministry.
