Linford Fisher is assistant professor at Brown University. He graduated from Lancaster Bible College in 1999 and received masters degrees in religion and church history from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in 2002. Fisher completed his doctorate in American religious history at Harvard in 2008. The topic of his dissertation—how the 18th-century religious "awakening" in New England impacted Native Americans—is also the subject of his first book, The Indian Great Awakening: Religion and the Shaping of Native Cultures in Early America. "Christianity and the Native American Religious Experience" was the final event in a 2012 lecture series organized by Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society, Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The Society seeks to understand Native American history as a critical part of both the Mennonite and the Lancaster County story. The Society's book and museum store sells The Indian Great Awakening for $34.95. Visit www.lmhs.org, call (717) 393-9745, or e-mail shop@lmhs.org for details.
