Product Description

Christian institutions of higher learning are set apart in today's world. How then, operating as small islands in a wide sea of secular intellectualism, should Christian colleges understand themselves and go about their mission? Advocating a middle road approach that doesn't bend to the broader culture or hide away from it, David S. Dockery looks at the challenges facing Christian schools, the value of Christian thinking and the Christian intellectual tradition, the marks of a Christian academic community, and the call to mission. Taken from various presentations and lectures, this second edition has formatted them to be more in keeping with academic standards. 214 indexed pages, softcover.

Publisher's Description

"Be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God." (Romans 12:2)

Renewing Minds serves as a clear introduction to the field of higher Christian education, focusing on the distinctive, important role of Christian-influenced learning—both in the Kingdom of God and in the academic world.

Union University president David S. Dockery writes for administrators, trustees, church leaders, faculty, and staff who are just beginning their service or association with a Christ-centered institution, and also to students and parents who are considering a Christian college or university.

Chapters include: "Loving God with Our Minds," "Renewing Minds, Serving Church and Society," "Shaping a Christian Worldview," "Reclaiming the Christian Intellectual Tradition," "Integrating Faith and Learning," "Envisioning a Shared Community of Tradition, Belonging, and Renewing Minds," "Establishing a Grace-Filled Academic Community," "Developing a Theology for Christian Higher Education," and "Thinking Globally about the Future."

New source information and footnotes have been added to this second edition. While the chapters still reflect their original shape as formal addresses given in various settings, this revised and updated edition formats the book in a way that is more consistent with academic rather than popular expectations.

Author Bio

David S. Dockery is the president of Union University in Jackson, Tennessee. He currently serves as chairman of the board of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, has authored more than twenty-five books, and is a contributing editor for Christianity Today magazine.
