What I Do

I am a Distinguished — Distinguished? — Professor of the Humanities in the Honors Program at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. I am the author most recently of The Book of Common Prayer: A Biography. An associated tumblelog is here.

You can find a list of my books and (many) other writings at The New Atlantis, where I am a Contributing Editor. My personal blog is called Snakes and Ladders; I also write occasionally for The American Conservative

I have a Twitter, but I only use it for links — I don’t look at it, and therefore don’t see replies. I explain this decision in this post

I also maintain what one might call a coffee-table website called The Gospel of the Trees
