Ted A. Smith is the author of The New Measures: A Theological History of Democratic Practice (2007). He works at the intersections of practical and political theology, with special attention to the forms preaching and worship take in modern societies. Smith’s current research explores the notion of “divine violence” through a study of sermons, speeches, and essays about the abolitionist John Brown.
