Editorial Reviews


''With Baylor at the Crossroads, Don Schmeltekopf has provided a splendid record of how best to negotiate the tough choices all church-related schools face today. . . . Don's service is instructive to all of us who care deeply about the life of faith and its inextricable relationship to the life of reason.''
--Mark R. Schwehn, Professor of Humanities in Christ College, Valparaiso University

''Having watched and written about Baylor's remarkable rise to a research university while simultaneously strengthening its Christian character, I hungered for the story of that ascent by its architect, Provost Donald Schmeltekopf. My hunger was satisfied by this exciting account that reads like a novel while offering important teachings about how schools might achieve quality with soul.''
--Robert Benne, Jordan-Trexler Professor of Religion Emeritus, Roanoke College

''Schmeltekopf's vision, integrity, and courage helped drive Baylor forward during a period of enormous change. . . . May this memoir guide and inspire a new generation of academic leaders at Baylor and beyond.''
--Wilson D. Miscamble, Professor of History, University of Notre Dame

''A must-read for anyone interested in the past struggles of Christian higher education and its future prospects. We all need to learn the lessons Schmeltekopf can teach.''
--David Solomon, H. B. and W. P. White Director Emeritus, Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture

''As its chief academic officer, Donald Schmeltekopf presided over the transformation of Baylor University from a regional school known chiefly for its undergraduate teaching into an international research university known also for its integration of firm Christian faith with rigorous academic research. Schmeltekopf's memoirs of his years as the Baylor provost provide excellent insight into this revolutionary event.''
--Ralph C. Wood, University Professor of Theology and Literature, Baylor University --Wipf and Stock Publishers
