(p. v) Acknowledgments

I am indebted to a good number of people for their help with this project during the last few years. My editor, Theo Calderara, first approached me with the idea, and then provided excellent guidance at many steps along the way. John Stackhouse helped me formulate the initial outline of topics and writers, and kept offering wise advice as the project proceeded. Robert Benne was a continual source of editorial insight and friendly encouragement. Doug Sweeney and Paul Hinlicky made valuable recommendations. I could not have completed this volume without indispensable summer and sabbatical support from Roanoke College and the Institute for Studies of Religion at Baylor University. The Institute's director, Byron Johnson, has been especially helpful and encouraging. One could not ask for a more cheerful and efficient secretary than Judith Pinckney. Finally, I could not have finished this volume without the love and counsel of my dear wife, Jean. (p. vi)
