New Books in Religion: Kristian Petersen's Interviews Online

Kristian Petersen

We’ve jumped on the Color of Christ bandwagon at New Books in Religion. Our hour-long conversation (as promised long ago) with both Edward Blum and Paul Harvey is posted for your listening pleasure (listen here). In addition to discussing much of the book’s content Blum and Harvey give us a peak into their creative relationship, being a public academic, and how to write a great book.

Here is a blurb from the post:

In our chat, Blum and Harvey discuss the ups and downs of American religious history, offering various vignettes of Jesus’ role in determining opinions about race. They also help us think about being an author, including issues of public scholarship, hustling as an academic, creating a book website, successful peer review, editorial control, and co-writing a book.

If you are looking for something to do this summer you can revisit some previous NBIR interviews with Kathryn Lofton on Oprah, Kelly Baker on the Ku Klux Klan, Hugh Urban on Scientology, Jim Wellman on Rob Bell, Brent Plate on Religion and Film, and Monica Miller on Religion and Hip Hop. Several books of interest are on the way too. We will be speaking with John Modern about Secularism in Antebellum America, and Sarah Ruble about The Gospel of Freedom and Power in the next few months.
