It was kind of cool that I bought it a month or so ago at the Harvard Divinity School bookstore and as I was walking to my car, Professor Hall passed me in the parking garage and I got to say hello and he pretended to remember me.

Theological Rock Star sighting!

How funny/ironic/serendipitous -- I also saw Faithful Shepherd at the HDS bookstore and bought my own copy (since it had been such an important resource for MY doctoral dissertation), and have also just acquired The Name of War after reading her review of Nathaniel Philbrick's Mayflower in the New Yorker. Here are two more great ones for you (sorry I can't figure out the linking thing) Harry Stout's The New England Soul and Donald Scott's From Office to Profession.
