I spent yesterday morning speaking to a “History of Christianity” class at California University of Pennsylvania. What a bright and lively group of students! I talked about my book The Mass of the Early Christians. Students kept me in conversation for a long time after class ended — until the gracious prof who invited me, Dr. Paul Crawford, dragged me off to lunch. The student conversations have continued via email.
I have a dread fear of public speaking. But this day was a delight.
