I am a co-editor (with Kathryn Gin Lum and Mark Noll) of the Library of Religious Biography series, published by William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company. Started in the early 1990s, the LRB series includes a number of award-winning books, from Harry S. Stout’s The Divine Dramatist: George Whitefield and the Rise of Modern Evangelicalism to Nancy Koester’s Harriet Beecher Stowe: A Spiritual Life. The series is aimed at a crossover audience of scholars, students, and educated readers who find in biography an inviting point of entry into broader religious histories. We are always open to pitches for new books in the series. Don’t hesitate to reach out via e-mail to heath.carter@valpo.edu.

–Cara Burnidge on Elizabeth Cady Stanton
