Conceiving the Christian College
1 in stock
This book is designed to help those who are interested in Christian higher education explore anew the unique features, opportunities and contemporary challenges of one distinct type of educational institution - the Christian college.
What is unique about Christian colleges? What is required to sustain them? How do they maintain their bearing in the tumultuous intellectual seas of the twenty-first century? In this book, Duane Litfin aims to refocus the conceptual challenges to Christian education in ways that will strengthen both the academic environment of today's Christian colleges and their impact on culture at large.
"A valuable and stimulating addition to recent discussions of Christian higher education, focusing on a systemic rather than an umbrella model. Duane Litfin unpacks the theological foundations of clichés like 'Christ-centered learning' and 'integration' and analyzes current challenges with a wary eye on both Enlightenment and postmodern assumptions."
