“In this history of Shiloh, since the author is letting us sit beside her as she gathers and goes over the evidence, the memories, it is entirely appropriate that she tells the story in the first person. Many who read this book know Donna Kennedy and they will almost hear her voice as they sit beside her to turn the pages. This book, which shows the process of the historian at work sometimes has her pointing out where information is missing and even expressing her own frustration and disappointment. This is a very personal story, as it should be, and we come to feel personally involved.”

“I remember two classes at Shiloh that were turning points in my academic and spiritual life. It may have been first semester senior year that Mrs. Kennedy had us reading the General Prologue of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, T.S. Eliot’s Murder in the Cathedral and Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Out-of-class assigned reading also included a certain 550-page text about American literature. Thirty years later, I’m now regularly asked to write literary criticism…it all began with Mrs. Kennedy and The Flowering of New England. The other Shiloh class that I know, in retrospect, to have very much changed my life was ‘Selected Theological Problems’, a senior seminar team-taught by Grael Gannon, Stephen Sturlaugson and others. We discussed the development of Christian doctrine on the Trinity, the Incarnation, Christian Baptism and different theological strategies. The experience of all this careful thinking and debate proved to me that Christian theology was an exciting and interesting subject.”
