A brief introduction to the unique purpose and nature of a Christian college education for students, their parents, teachers, and others. At last: a brief, readable introduction to the unique purpose and value of a Christian college education. This book draws on the insights of a wide range of Christian philosophers, historians, scientists, and theologians, but communicates key concepts in straightforward language and analogies that will connect with today's college students. An ideal introduction to the Christian college experience for students, parents, faculty, and church leaders, it is the only book on the market to introduce the idea of a Christian college in a brief, freshman-level format. The new edition expands the discussion of Christian worldview beyond intellectual analysis to include actions and attitudes. Sections on the Christian mind, redemption, and cultural engagement have been revised to incorporate the recent insights of Christian thinkers such as Andy Crouch, James Davison Hunter, Gabe Lyons, Mark Noll, and James K. A. Smith. The new edition also includes revised discussion questions for each chapter.
