Review:

“This ‘field guide’ for Christian educators is distinguished by its holistic
approach. Addressed especially to those who are new to Christian higher
education, it sets that enterprise in its cultural and historical contexts, and
provides valuable guidelines for integrating faith and learning in classrooms
and scholarship, and for engaging the wider culture. Beyond those more
intellectual concerns, it adds wise advice for engaging in Christian education
as part of a balanced Christian life that includes concerns for community, joy
in one’s vocation, principles for leadership, and the value of worship and rest.”
— George Marsden, University of Notre Dame, author of The Outrageous
Idea of Christian Scholarship


“John Henry Newman once said that ‘a university is . . . knowing her children
one by one, not a factory, or a mint, or a treadmill.’ With firm conviction that
all truth is Gods truth, the contributors to The Soul of a Christian University
offer helpful suggestions and practical arguments that help transform the
mundane classroom into an atmosphere of incarnational, interactive
exchange that begins to restore John Newman’s ideal. The suggested reading
and endnotes are worth the price of the book.”
—Jay Kesler, President Emeritus, Taylor University


“In this fine volume, Stephen Beers and his colleagues succeed in surveying
the scope of Christian higher education. The book offers both inspiring and
helpful strategies for application for the practitioners who make the
institutions of the CCCU places of Christ-centered excellence.”
— Kimberly C. Thornbury, Vice President for Student Services and Dean
of Students, Union University, Jackson, Tennessee
