Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
David Dockery has edited a volume, most of the contributors of which come from Union University faculty, that illustrates one of the best attempts to articulate the distinctive Christian voice at the very heart of Christian higher education: Faith and Learning: A Handbook of Christian Higher Education (B&H Academic, 2012).

Ours is a secular age that finds Christian colleges and universities struggling against what one scholar called "the dying of the light". Dockery and the many other contributors -- some seasoned faculty, others newcomers -- know the best of the Christian academic tradition. I was thoroughly impressed by the grand vision Faith and Learning sets out.

In these pages, every discipline from the modern halls of higher education is represented. Each of those disciplines also has a unique perspective for "the hope that lies in us", to quote 1 Peter. In Faith and Learning, Christians exercise their vocation. Teachers are at their craft. And it's a beautiful book.

Beautiful because here we learn what the Christian university can do to step up and meet its critics and their challenges in faithful ways.

Dockery's foundational essay behind by identifying disciples in higher education as followers of Jesus learning to "think Christianly". And that vision informs each of the chapters to follow. From biblical studies to business studies, this book is filled with the pursuit of that vision to "think Christianly" about all those disciplines.

The ultimate goal of Christian education, though, isn't just information or even formation. Christian higher education aims at transformation. As both a college professor and pastor, I think all these essays keep that goal in mind.
