John Turner and Brigham Young

John Turner, although now living in a religious studies department, is an outstanding historian of American Religion. I’ve previously taught his book on Bill Bright and Campus Crusade for Christ.

John has a new biography of Brigham Young out. (And, speaking of what to read, it’s currently on my nightstand for on-going reading.) It’s been getting great reviews. I hope I’ll have an opportunity to teach it soon.

To whet your appetite, let me pass along a lecture Turner gave this fall at Baylor. The video is here (if that’s not specific enough, select “Lectures” and then Turner’s lecture). I hope you find it as engaging as I did.

John also blogs at The Anxious Bench.
