What I Do

I am Distinguished Professor of the Humanities in the Honors Program at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. My most recent books are The Book of Common Prayer: A Biography and a critical edition of Auden’s The Age of Anxiety (both Princeton University Press, 2013). A tumblr for the BCP biography may be found here.)

I am at work right now on a book to be published in August 2017: How to Think: A Guide for the Perplexed. The following year, or maybe even later in the same year, will see the publication of The Year of Our Lord 1943: Christian Intellectuals and Total War (Harvard University Press). 

You can find a list of my books and (many) other writings at The New Atlantis, where I am a Contributing Editor and where I write a blog on technologies of knowledge called Text Patterns. I post links to my research on my Pinboard page

I have a Twitter, but I mainly use it for links — I rarely 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

Nota Bene: in the URL of this site the "org" is for organism
