DISSERTATION AND CURRENT RESEARCH:
My Dissertation titled: "Dividing the Disciples: Social, Cultural, and Intellectual Sources of Division in the Disciples of Christ, 1919-1945." Studies the interplay of social/cultural change and religious ideology in the development of intra-denominational religious conflict in modern America. My work illustrates how conflict among religious Americans often occurs as the result of changing views regarding issues of social and political concern as well as from differences over issues of doctrine and polity.
