A “Convergent Model” Book is Coming

One of the editors from Pickwick Publications sent me the uncorrected proofs of my soon-to-be published book, “A Convergent Model of Renewal: Remixing the Quaker Tradition in  a Participatory Culture.” It is amazing how much work goes into making this happen, from the research, writing and countless hours editing, I will be glad to see this take flight in the world.

Quaker scholar, Ben Pink Dandelion wrote the foreword for the book, and Peggy Morrison, Quaker minister, storyteller and author, wrote the afterword.

For more information visit Pickwick Publications or the page for the book on my website.
