Dr. Julian Hartt, in a unique position to interpret the American college campus scene, sees a profoundly creative age just ahead, requiring clearness of purpose, wisdom in decision, steadfast hope, and the courage to do the unpopular thing when necessary. But without a serious confrontation of Christian commitment, university students may end up seeking fellowship in the appropriate mutual admiration society. What is the function of the theologian in the college atmosphere? What is the responsibility of the Christian college engulfed in a variety of theological beliefs? The college chapel, hit by the first shock wave of the turmoil outside the university gates, is the Christian center closest to the action, says Dr. Hartt. It could become a strategic theological arena for discussion of the key policy questions this nation will decide in years to come.

Stanley Hauerwas is Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Christian Ethics at Duke University and holds a joint appointment in Duke Law School. He is known to be controversial and outspoken; his stand as a pacifist against the Iraq war made him a nationally recognized dissident but won him few friends. His work cuts across disciplinary lines: systematic theology, philosophical theology and ethics, political theory, as well as the philosophy of social science and medical ethics.
