In addition to his notable work as a premier Christian philosopher, Nicholas Wolterstorff has become a leading voice on faith-based higher education. This volume gathers the best of Wolterstorff's essays from the past twenty-five years dealing collectively with the purpose of Christian higher education and the nature of academic learning.Integrated throughout by the biblical idea of shalom, these nineteen essays present a robust framework for thinking about education that combines a Reformed confessional perspective with a radical social conscience and an increasingly progressivist pedagogy. Wolterstorff develops his ideas in relation to an astonishing variety of thinkers ranging from Calvin, Kuyper, and Jellema to Augustine, Aquinas, and Kant to Weber, Habermas, and MacIntyre. In the process, he critiques various models of education, classic foundationalism, modernization theory, liberal arts, and academic freedom.CONTENTSPrefaceIntroductionRethinking Christian Higher EducationTeaching for Shalom: On the Goal of Christian Collegiate EducationThe Mission of the Christian College at the End of the Twentieth CenturyThe Integration of Faith and Learning--The Very IdeaOn the Idea of a Psychological Model of the Person That Is Biblically FaithfulThe Point of Connection between Faith and LearningThe World for Which We EducateA Case for Disinterested LearningThe Project of a Christian University in a Postmodern CultureTeaching for Justice: On Shaping How Students Are Disposed to ActAutobiography: The Story of Two Decades of Thinking about Christian Higher EducationCan Scholarship and Christian Conviction Mix?
