Our world is becoming more complex and perplexing, creating a unique and urgent context that necessitates a grounded and innovative approach to Christian higher education.
Christian higher education entails a unique way of thinking about teaching, learning, scholarship, curriculum, student life, administration, and governance that is based on the historic Christian faith.
In this volume, twenty-nine experts from various fields, including theology, humanities, science, mathematics, social science, philosophy, the arts, and professional programs, examine how Christianity's foundational beliefs influence higher education and its disciplines. This book calls students, professors, trustees, administrators, and church leaders to a renewed commitment to the distinctive work of Christian higher education—for the good of society, the good of the church, and the glory of God.
