The Gift and Task of Lutheran Higher Education

The Gift and Task of Lutheran Higher Education

Why should Lutherans care whether there are any ''Lutheran'' colleges and universities? Why should people who study, teach, and work in colleges and universities care whether they are ''Lutheran'' or not? And, maybe most significantly, what does the continued robustness of Lutheran higher education have to contribute to the church and to life and work in the broader public arena? Tom Christenson has thoughtful and persuasive answers to all these questions, and more.

"With this volume, Christenson emerges as the chief public spokesperson in this country today for the distinctive virtues and opportunities of Lutheran higher education. He writes with the imagination of a poet, the precision of a philosopher, and the power of a master teacher. This is a must-read for all who care about Lutheran higher education. More than that, it is a must-read for all who care about the relationship between learning and faith in the contemporary academy—and in the church."
