The James L. Hedges Distinguished Lecture

Posted: February 6, 2012

APU's Center for Research on Ethics and Values welcomes Lori Anne Ferrell to this year's James L. Hedges Distinguished Lecture, which will take place February 28 from 7 to 8 p.m. at Upper Turner Campus Center.

Ferrell, a professor of Early Modern History and Literature at Claremont Graduate University, will be discussing her book The Bible and the People (Yale University Press, 2008), which focuses on the English-speaking world and charts the extraordinary voyage of the Bible from manuscript Bibles to the Gutenberg volumes, Bibles commissioned by kings and queens, the Eliot Indian Bible, door-to-door salesmen’s Bibles, children’s Bibles, Gideon Bibles, teen magazine Bibles, and more. In it Ferrell discusses the Bible’s profound impact on readers over the centuries and, in turn, the mark those readers made upon it.

The lecture is free and open to the APU community and the public. For more information on the lecture, contact Mark Eaton at (626) 815-2075 or
