In this installment, I go a bit “meta” in talking about my personal interest in hymns as a Christian and what it might mean to be not just a scholar who is a Christian but a “Christian scholar.” Please share any thoughts, insights, questions, criticisms, etc.; this is part of an ongoing work of academic self-fashioning. Reading: Reginald Heber’s “Epiphany.” Approx. 17 min.
