Although biblical preaching and theology are still teaching passions of mine, history has become a major focus in my academic life. I continue to inform myself on historical method and apply it to the study of Ellen White and Adventist history. Did your research for that book lead you naturally to your newest book focusing on Ellen White's historical context during the Civil War? In this sense, the first book led into the second one. There is a difference in the focus of the two books, however. The first one was more prescriptive and focused on apologetics; whereas, the second one is more descriptive and focused on applying historical analysis.
Was there anything that really surprised you? One striking fact was that she addressed essentially all of the major issues related to the war in only 30 pages of her writings which contributed to the large size of my book. Adventist eschatology often presents the negative side of America in prophecy, but here Ellen White affirms that the nation is in divine hands.
I was so impressed with this statement, which forms the core of her Civil War writings, that it became the title and theme of the book.

What really came as a surprise was the impact of Civil War on me. I will be studying this war and visiting its battlefields for the rest of my life. Several of the Interstates go through or by important battlefields, and I have to be careful because it is all I can do to keep my eyes on the highway when passing one of these historical sites. The feedback I have received from individual Adventist readers so far is positive.
Everything — I love the research and writing process. The hardest thing is carving out the time to do it. How long did it take? The writing process coupled with the intensive research took four years. A project of this magnitude involved long years of hard work, and I did not allow myself to be distracted. So I kept at it beside, beneath, and around university and family responsibilities.
During the summer months, when I was not teaching or engaged in speaking appointments, I wrote for 8 to 10 hours a day. This was my most productive time. Can you tell us more about the Institute? Did you found it?
