Beschreibung

Christian colleges have been set up by Christian churches throughout American history. But all too often these schools and the groups that support them come into conflict, typically over what is being taught in religion and philosophy classes. Christian College, Christian Calling seeks not so much to resolve this tension between congregation and academy as to explain why it exists and why it might even be fruitful. Instructors of philosophy, theology, church history, Biblical studies, and ministry from Azusa Pacific University explain the value of their disciplines in down-to-earth terms not in terms of academic achievement but in terms of the Christian life. Looking to get past the stereotypes of liberal, faith-diluting colleges and conservative, unthinking churches, Christian College, Christian Calling provides an invaluable resource for anyone concerned about the mission and relevance of Christian higher education.

Pressestimmen

This book shows how higher education can be both Christian and scholarly, theoretical and practical, have intellectual integrity yet still be trustworthy, and educate students to have both competence and commitment. Educators as well as lay people will profit from this fine book. Don Browning, University of Chicago, and author of A Fundamental Practical Theologyyyy -- Don Browning, University of Chicago, author of A Fundamental Practical Theology In my travels, I consistently see how Christian higher education can function like an open window for faith communities. Without the winds of fresh ideas, communities grow stale, sleepy, and grumpy. The Bible speaks often about the need to seek knowledge, wisdom, and understanding from wise teachers - and this helpful book demonstrates the great value of wise teachers serving the next generation through higher education. Highly recommended! astor and author of A New Kind of Christian. -- Brian McLaren, Pastor of Cedar Ridge Community Church (Maryland) and author of A New Kind of Christian.
