If festschrifts celebrate a person for their life's work, few are more worthy of the honor than Bill J. Leonard.

These essays explore topics ranging from race and spirituality to Appalachian religion, and religious freedom. If one detects a familiar ring, it is because those are broad themes that reflect Bill Leonard's career.
