Yesterday, I mentioned a new reference work to which I contributed articles. It reminded me that I also wrote another article for an ABC-CLIO reference work that was published this past spring. The article introduced the figure Abraham/Ibrahim, mainly in Judaism, Islam, Christianity. Scott E. Hendrix and Uchenna Okeja, eds. The World’s Greatest Religious Leaders: How Religious Figures Helped to Shape World History (ABC-CLIO, 2018). The reference work is intended for an undergraduate audience.
Last year, I wrote a few articles on women in Judaism that have been published in Susan de-Gaia, ed. Encyclopedia of Women in World Religions: Faith and Culture across History (ABL-CLIO, 2018). It is a 2 volume reference book suitable for undergraduates, but its costs means you should request it for your school’s library.
UPDATE 12.26.2018: Susan de Gaia informs me that she has set up a wordpress with more information (authors and titles) on the encyclopedia.
Thanks for stopping by. Sorry it isn’t more interesting.
This is my page. I will be adding publication notices, pedagogy activities, and whatever other sorts of “stuff” (my undergrad business professor hated when students used “stuff” because it was too vague, a way to avoid saying something worthwhile) I should post to shamelessly promote myself. I may also open it up to books I am reading and things I come across that I relate to the study of religion. I am researching self-help literature, so I will probably post about that too. And I like popular culture and soccer (football for non-US folks) so I might sometimes muse about them as well.
Please check back as I add more content.
