- Finish a book review for Church History
- Complete the syllabus and assignments for my spring course at UTC on "Religion in the Age of Jonathan Edwards, John Wesley, and George Whitefield"
- Secure the rights for all the images in my forthcoming book on Jonathan Edwards and Transatlantic Print Culture
- Write the conclusion and finish editing my book on Jonathan Edwards and Transatlantic Print Culture
Besides finishing my book, my other major project is to put the finishing touches on a course at UTC that I will be teaching this spring. I am calling the course, "Religion in the Age of Jonathan Edwards, John Wesley, and George Whitefield." The course will not simply be about these leading figures, or about eighteenth-century evangelicalism. Rather, I plan on talking about religion as a whole during the so-called "Age of Reason," and how Christians responded to the culture and intellectual movement known as the Enlightenment, as well as political and economic pressures present during the eighteenth century. I have selected Sarah Osborn's World by Catherine Brekus, A Short Life of Jonathan Edwards by George Marsden, John Wesley: A Biography by Stephen Tomkins, and George Whitefield: America's Spiritual Founding Father by Thomas Kidd as my required texts. I will also be having the class read primary sources from these and other influential figures. It should be a fun class, and I hope it will be interesting for the students.
