Grove City College Professor Gary Smith Publishes a New Book
In addition to serving as part-time pastor in Shenango churches, Gary Smith is a highly respected historian of American Christianity. Mark Noll, Notre Dame University world-renowned historian, writes the following about Gary’s new bookHeaven in the American Imagination (Oxford University Press): “This rich account of speculations about heaven is chock full of the sophisticated and the crass, the sublime and the ridiculous, the mystical and the maudlin. The book reveals a great deal about eternal life as conceived by Protestants, Catholics, Mormons, Jews, and others – but perhaps even more about the American circumstances in which these conceptions have been expressed.”
