So I hope Tim Larsen will forgive us for offering him such a late public congratulations on the appearance of yet another excellent work. Last fall, Tim's book The Slain God: Anthropologists and the Christian Faith (OUP, 2014) arrived with great fanfare. (You can read a review by Christian Smith here). Congratulations, Tim!
On a similar note, I wanted to mention Tim's upcoming lecture at the University of Wales next Wednesday, May 20, 2015. We recently had a round table-like discussion of Tim's book at the Nineteenth-Century Society here at Wheaton College that was enlightening and entertaining. I hope some of you will be able to make it.
