Less than the Least

As of yesterday, David Skeel and Bill Stuntz have begun writing a new blog called "Less than the Least."  Law professors at UPenn and Harvard, respectively, David and Bill are close friends who share a faith commitment as well as a career.  Here is how they introduce their blog:

We are both law professors and evangelical Protestants – a weird combination in our time. We hope it’s also an interesting combination. We plan to write about the things that interest us, professionally and personally: crime and criminal justice (Stuntz), corporate governance, credit, and bankruptcy (Skeel), the culture wars, politics, literature and the arts, and other topics.

It should also be noted that Professor Skeel is an elder in Philadelphia's Tenth Presbyterian Church.  Needless to say, it is encouraging to see Christians in academia writing from the perspective of their faith.  Readers of Reformation 21 will recognize, I hope, the biblical allusion in the blog's title.  It represents the right stance for Christians to take in the public arena.
