New Brethren blogger: Carl Bowman

From Eastern Mennonite University, 1200 Park Rd, Harrisonburg, VA 22802, USA
Just a few weeks ago, Brethren sociologist, Carl Bowman, started blogging at Brethren Cultural Landscape, and Brethren seem to have taken notice, actively commenting on his posts. Right now he seems to be making posts based on his 2006 Brethren Member Profile survey research, which went into the book, Portrait of a People: The Church of the Brethren at 300, which I read over the summer.

Having been familiar with his work for a few years now, I was recently surprised to find that his PhD advisor at the University of Virginia was James Davison Hunter, whose book, To Change the WorldI'm reading now. Both Hunter and Bowman are involved in the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at UVA.
