This book demonstrates that, despite much evidence to the contrary, there are still Christian colleges and universities of high academic quality that have also kept their religious heritages publicly relevant. Respected scholar Robert Benne explores how six schools from six different religious traditions (Calvin College, Wheaton College, St. Olaf College, Valparaiso University, Baylor University, and the University of Notre Dame) have maintained "quality with soul". These constructive case studies examine the vision, ethos, and personnel policies of each school, showing how 'and why' its religious foundation remains strong.

From Library Journal:

In The Paradoxical Vision: A Public Theology for the Twenty-First Century, Benne decried the marginalization of religion in American life. Here the well-known professor of religion (Roanoke Coll.) laments the secularization of many fine colleges and universities with religious origins. Some institutions became nonsectarian to emphasize their intellectual and democratic qualities, while others abrogated religious content to qualify for federal funds or to bolster enrollment. Benne blames uncommitted board members and faculty for allowing their schools' heritage to be diminished or eliminated. He then describes six institutions that have admirably maintained their religious traditions: Calvin College, Wheaton College, St. Olaf College, Valparaiso University, Baylor University, and the University of Notre Dame. The concluding chapters analyze the factors that have allowed these schools to resist trends toward secularization and suggest strategies that others might use to recover their eroded past. Highly recommended for its thorough research and thoughtful presentation. Will Hepfer, SUNY at Buffalo Libs.
