Temple Mount / Dome of the Rock, Jerusalem

This New Year’s Day, gratitude for all of you who followed Wayne Street Soul in 2013. Thank you so much! Here are some highlights from the past year:

Viva Bosnia” — on the stirrings of hope in a shattered land

A Curmudgeon’s Take on the World Series” — humor, on that infamous obstruction call

New England Fall” — photographs from another gorgeous fall

The Next Generation of Mormon Studies” — on my archival research and forthcoming book

Keeping Score” — more on baseball, and a father’s obsessions

Images from the Middle East” — photographs from my first trip to Israel and the Palestinian Territories

More to come in 2014, including updates on my two book projects: All We Have Left (essays on postwar Bosnia & Herzegovina) and Authority, Ambition, and the Mormon Mind: American Universities and the Evolution of Mormonism, 1867-1940.
