I occasionally write articles for Bearings Online, the online publication of the Collegeville Institute for Ecumenical and Cultural Research in Collegeville, MN–I spent a transformative sabbatical semester there in Spring 2009. I received word yesterday that two of my articles are included in their “Top Ten Articles of 2017” list (I wrote three for them in 2017)!
This article, published last November, came in at #4. It is an exploration of how Protestant fundamentalism has influenced how Americans read and interpret “sacred” texts from the Bible to the U.S. Constitution. Enjoy!
