Brown Bag Lunch - Exploring New England's Spiritual Heritage
Had enough of the Freedom Trail and Fenway Park? Here is an entirely new way to see New England, following some of its roads less traveled into some surprising encounters with its spiritual past. Garth Rosell, professor of church history at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, has put together a wonderfully informative handbook — complete with maps, easy-to-follow directions, helpful commentary, and many beautiful pictures — that should be a staple of your summer vacation plans. The day trips are great for families, with plenty to interest both children and adults.
Ever wonder where Cotton Mather preached? Or are you interested in seeing the crypt of George Whitefield, the most famous preacher of the eighteenth century? Rosell's tours will also take you through the back streets of Salem and the home turf of Jonathan Edwards in the Connecticut River Valley. You can see the docks where the first missionaries left for India in 1812 and visit the Northfield, Massachusetts, home of the great evangelist Dwight L. Moody.
Come learn more about these trips from the author — and pick up a copy of the book at the same time.
