My Blog Perspective

Honestly, folks.   I have not the time to keep a blog  on a daily basis.  This is my attempt at a commentary on a few things.  I will attempt to update it on  a weekly basis -- but probably no more.  For those who wind up here but are not my students,  I am an assistant professor of history at Harding University.  The views contained here are my own and not those of Harding University.    Below you will find an attempt to maintain a Christian historical perspective.
