UVA Today featured new books by UVA authors that "can spice up your summer reading." The list includes two recent publications by UVA Religious Studies professors Ashon Crawley and Harry Gamble.
Ashon Crawley, associate professor of African American and African Studies and religious studies, “The Lonely Letters.” In “The Lonely Letters,” Ashon Crawley, writing as “A,” blends autobiography, fiction and philosophy, and meditates on the interrelation of “blackqueer” life, sounds of the Black church, theology, mysticism and love.
Harry Y. Gamble, professor emeritus of religious studies, “God on the Grounds: A History of Religion at Thomas Jefferson’s University.” Many people know Jefferson planned a secular college. So how did the University Chapel come to be? The University of Virginia Press published this in May.
