I’m quite happy to have received the A. Donald MacLeod Award for Presbyterian History at the Presbyterian Scholars Conference earlier this week.
The award was given to me for my book The Presbyterian Philosopher. At the conference I gave a speech I titled “The Grand Old Doc.”
It was quite the crew of participants in the conference. Nearly all of them have had works published in Presbyterian History or theology. I had especially good conversations with Byron Curtis of Geneva College and Dirk Mouw, an independent researcher. I also met authors Mark Noll, C. Hassell Bullock, Carl Trueman, Richard Mouw, Bradley Longfield, Jeff McDonald, and, of course, Donald MacLeod.
