Product Description

A team of Christians devoted to the liberal arts presents 25 essays articulating their importance and nature in Liberal Arts for the Christian Life.

For over forty years, Leland Ryken has championed and modeled a Christian liberal arts education. His scholarship and commitment to integrating faith with learning in the classroom have influenced thousands of students who have sat under his winsome teaching. Published in honor of Professor Ryken and presented on the occasion of his retirement from Wheaton College, this compilation carries on his legacy of applying a Christian liberal arts education to all areas of life.

Through five sections contributors explore the background of a Christian liberal arts education, its theological basis, habits and virtues, differing approaches, and ultimate aims. They examine its impact on society and the church, and argue that the liberal arts are indispensable to a just and peaceful society. They also analyze liberal arts as they relate to the disciplines, the Christian faith, and the world. Also included are a transcript of a well-known 1984 chapel talk delivered by Leland Ryken on the student's calling and practical chapters on how to read, write, and speak well.

Comprehensive in scope, this substantial volume will be a helpful guide to anyone involved in higher education, as well as to students, pastors, and leaders looking for resources on the importance of faith in learning.
