So for Lent I have given up Twitter and Facebook, hoping to use this time to recenter myself. That being said, I also get emails from when people tweet me. It looks like Fea is looking for some support for the Junto’s March Madness, and I think his works are certainly worthy to get a shout out in the bracket.
Here is a bit of what he had to say,
So far The Way of Improvement Leads Home and Was America Founded as a Christian Nation? have been snubbed by The Junto readers. In a sad attempt at self-promotion, I am hoping that dozens of people will nominate them by 5pm tomorrow (Thursday). They may get a low seed, but I really think they might be able to pull some early round upsets. The Way of Improvement Leads Home and Was America Founded as a Christian Nation? could be the Valparaiso, Weber State, Bucknell, Northern Iowa, Austin Peay, Princeton, Coppin State, Hampton, George Mason, Santa Clara, North Carolina State, or Texas Western of this tournament. Both books are well-coached. The Way of Improvement Leads Home has a strong post game, while Was America Founded as a Christian Nation? can shoot the three-pointer. Both books have won some big games on the road over the last few years.
If you want to read all the details behind nominating, and who Fea nominated, check out his blog post here. So go on out there and nominate these two works!
