9780891125358: Why College Matters to God: A Student's Introduction to The Christian College Experience

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. Brief enough to be paired with other 'first-year' texts, it is an ideal introduction to the Christian college experience for students, faculty, and staff.

About the Author:

Rick Ostrander (Ph.D., Notre Dame) is Provost at Cornerstone University, Grand Rapids, Michigan. He served as Academic Dean at John Brown University, where he oversaw the First-Year Seminar and the University Core Curriculum. He has authored several publications on higher education, including most recent 'Spirituality and the Discipline of History' in Searching for Spirituality in Higher Education (Peter Lang, 2007). Dr. Ostrander has also served as a Fulbright Senior Scholar in American History at the University of Wurzburg, Germany.

Review:

"Perhaps the best available introduction for students to the aims and purposes of a Christian college education . . . I see this book as a potential replacement for Arthur F. Holmes's venerable The Idea of a Christian College, which was popular for a long time in two editions (1975 and 1987). The Creation-Fall-Redemption core gives Why College Matters an excellent conceptual anchor that is likely to make the book's ideas memorable to students." ---- Michael Hamilton, Chair, Department of History, Seattle Pacific University
