Publisher's Description

The quest for truth is an adventure into real life. In her book Finding God at Harvard, Kelly Monroe brought together the stories of thinking Christians whose search for truth led them to Veritas—in the person of Jesus Christ. Now she tells the story of her own journey into wonder and discovery, which took her beyond the ivied walls of Harvard to universities across the country. In the midst of the arid skepticism of the academy, she found a vibrant, interdisciplinary community unafraid of facing life's toughest questions, embracing the quest for true knowledge with intellectual rigor, delight and joy. As The Veritas Forum grappled with the insights of the academy's brightest Christian scholars, Kelly came to realize that truth or Veritas is no mere abstract concept but the very light by which we see all things. Engaging narrative and provocative content come together in this mind-stretching and heart-challenging journey. Come with Kelly on an intellectual road trip as The Veritas Forum explores the deepest questions of the university world, and the culture at large. And discover for yourself that Veritas transcends philosophy or religion and instead brings true life.

Endorsements

"A most stimulating introduction to the Veritas Forums that have been held at campuses in the United States and abroad."
- Mark Noll, University of Notre Dame

"Simply put, this is an extraordinary book. It evokes recurring memories of Anne Morrow Lindbergh's splendid Gift from the Sea in that it poignantly probes both the beauty and the pain of living, in this case of one very brave soul yearning to please God and live life to the fullest. It made me laugh and brought me to tears. It is a 'must read'"
- J. Stanley Mattson, Founder and President, C.S. Lewis Foundation

"In Finding God at Harvard, Kelly Monroe drew on some of the brightest Christian minds associated with America's first college to build a multidisciplinary case for the reasonableness of Christian faith. Finding God Beyond Harvard is they story of the movement that brought--and is still bringing--that conversation to universities around the world. Perhaps more significantly, Finding God Beyond Harvard is her personal story of a quiet journey through doubt and disappointment--and the lonely struggle to cling in private to the very truths she fought so hard to proclaim in public."
- Eric Convey, former religion reporter, Boston Herald

Editorial Reviews

"The Veritas Forum, fruit of Kelly Monroe's gift of inspiration and much dedicated work by committed colleagues, represents an instance of authentic spiritual revival at America's oldest academy, and a seed that has since germinated far beyond. Kelly's own subsequent personal journey of witness amidst the secular minefield of today's spiritually barren and largely post-Christian world of academia is a testimony to the infinite love and wisdom of the Holy Spirit. An intimate acquaintance with the very source of life himself has been the reward of those like Kelly who have traveled the path of the Forum's mission. I feel so blessed to have once been a small participant in Kelly's early struggles and triumphs in Cambridge, which produced Finding God at Harvard."
"Kelly Monroe Kullberg has written much more than an engaging autobiography because she shows how one life can point beyond itself. It is a believable story of the light from God's truth starting to shine out through the dust and debris of centuries of academic condescension and neglect."
"Kelly Monroe Kullberg has written a sparkling book, a passionate and deeply personal inside story of a burgeoning movement bringing Christian hope to an increasingly fragmented and alienating secular academy. Irreverant, inspirational, engaging, full of amusing stories, a page-turner . . . I couldn't put it down."
"Kelly Monroe Kullberg has written a warm and grace-filled book that blends the inspiring story of The Veritas Forum with a tender and deeply moving account of her own struggle to trust in the truth of Jesus Christ. In lively, graceful prose, Kullberg takes us along on her coast-to-coast adventures among college students who share a common hunger for truth--a hunger their secular universities failed to satisfy. Read Finding God Beyond Harvard to glimpse God at work in the secular academy and to see how the story of Christ's redemptive love continues to captivate young people in every generation."
"The poetry of Kelly's journey to--and with--Veritas invites me to believe all over again! This is passionate storytelling, pointing to an adventure beyond the mountains and streams of universities and marketplaces. But it would be a sad mistake to reduce her story to simplistic conservative or liberal perceptions of higher education. Rather, Kelly calls every reader to consider honestly the wonder of learning and living together, in the light of truth. There's hope in these pages!"
"Kelly Monroe Kullberg's new book reads like an extension of the book of Acts into the modern research university. Finding God Beyond Harvard is not only Kelly's story, it is God's story of men and women who love the academy for Christ's sake."
"This book is sui generis. Part history, especially of The Veritas Forum in its many avatars, part theological meditation at the deepest level, and part thoughtful, personal reflections on the many issues facing our generation, it is the perfect sequel to Finding God at Harvard. We have here an apologetic with the warmest possible human face. Most of all, these pages bespeak Kelly Monroe Kullberg's grace-filled generosity of spirit. She heralds a gospel which we want to believe, because it is truthful, yet charitable, full of love. Her style is engaging. You won't be able to put it down."
"Kelly Monroe Kullberg has captured the spirit and the academic and personal history of the Veritas Forums, one of the preeminent movements in the university's return to seeking truth. It is a story of how God is using one humble, on-fire woman and people all over the world in major universities to regain a seat at the academic roundtable. It is both revealing and refreshing for those of us in the academy whose worldview demands that we know and follow Jesus, the Word made flesh, in whom all things were created and by whom all things hold together."
"Kelly is a gifted writer with rich insight into what it means to be human: to long for love, to experience beauty and loss, and to hope beyond sometimes seeming hope in the God who made and loves us. With poignancy and poetic phrases, Kelly describes a story that only God, who is Veritas, could weave together."
"Kelly Monroe's kaleidoscopic quest for veritas is a colorful, poetic narrative filled with heartache and joy---riveting and unexpectedly poignant."
"Kelly Monroe Kullberg shares some of her exciting experiences as the founder and national director of The Veritas Forum--the organization that has profoundly influenced college students to consider the spiritual meaning of their lives. This deeply moving story of her personal journey gives the reader new insight into her remarkable achievements."
"Kelly Monroe Kullberg's memoir-cum-institutional history offers a most stimulating introduction to the Veritas Forums that have been held at campuses in the United States and abroad. The focus on Jesus Christ as the Truth has also been the focus of her own peripatetic, energetic and thought-provoking life."
"The story of The Veritas Forum can be summed up by the motto of St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109): fides quaerens intellectum---'faith seeking understanding.' For the details of the story---lovingly and engagingly told---we now have Kelly Monroe Kullberg's fine book Finding God Beyond Harvard. It vividly recounts the Lord's reaching out to some remarkable young truth-seekers who were willing to open their minds and hearts to the One who disclosed himself to us as the way, the truth and the life."
"Veritas has proved itself one of the most important initiatives in the contemporary church. Here Kelly Monroe tells us the story of her passion to relate the truth, goodness and beauty of the gospel to contemporary academic culture. It reminds me of Kelly herself--it is constantly inspiring, courageous and full of hope."
"Kelly Monroe Kullberg provides an engaging personal account of a nationwide effort to counter the shortcomings of secularized universities in pursuing one of their original goals: a quest for truth that is open to all the possible dimensions of reality."
"What do you do if you find yourself lost after you had already been found? In Finding God Beyond Harvard, Kelly Monroe Kullberg tells the story of God's remarkable work in taking The Veritas Forum to dozens of universities. However, the rise of Veritas inversely parallels the breaking and numbing of her own heart. Woven throughout this public tale is Kelly's renewed personal quest for veritas. Her depiction of the Christian story enfolds adventure, suffering, laughter, nature and the scholarship of keen minds in many disciplines. With words vivid and full of grace she reports back to us what she sees: a world broken yet still enchanted by a loving God who is redeeming all things."
"Simply put, this is an extraordinary book. It evokes recurring memories of Anne Morrow Lindbergh's splendid Gift from the Sea in that it poignantly probes both the beauty and the pain of living, in this case of one very brave soul yearning to please God and live life to the fullest. It made me laugh and brought me to tears. It is a 'must read!'"
"The Veritas Forums have done a marvelous job of holding forth on many campuses the profound vision that gave rise to most of our great universities: that all Truth ultimately holds together in Jesus Christ. In this highly readable and wonderfully inspiring book, Kelly Monroe Kullberg tells us how the Forums came into being, and how they spread throughout North America and beyond. But she also weaves into the story--and often with a wrenching candor--a chronicle of her own personal journey of faith as she has promoted the Veritas cause."
"The Veritas Forum is having a remarkable impact on college campuses, presenting the intellectual case for Christianity. But around Kelly Monroe Kullberg, 'intellectual' never means pedantic! In her account of the organization's founding, she welcomes readers into her life and ministry in prose that is refreshingly lively and spirited. Every page glows with her spunky personality."
"In Finding God at Harvard, Kelly Monroe drew on some of the brightest Christian minds associated with America's first college to build a multidisciplinary case for the reasonableness of Christian faith. Finding God Beyond Harvard is the story of the movement that brought--and is still bringing--that conversation to universities around the world. Perhaps more significantly, Finding God Beyond Harvard is her personal story of a quiet journey through doubt and disappointment--and the lonely struggle to cling in private to the very truths she fought so hard to proclaim in public."
"In her first book Kelly Monroe Kullberg stepped aside, allowing others to tell their own stories of finding God at Harvard. In Finding God Beyond Harvard she tells, in her own richly imaginative voice, her own story of the journey of The Veritas Forum, of her own pursuit of truth and the experience of again and again being found by It."
