When Pietism was born as a religious movement in the seventeenth century it was as closely related to the university as it was to the church. Like the original Pietists who insisted that prayer, Bible study and love of neighbor could be wedded to academic rigor, the contributors to this volume share a vision for education that aims at both hearts and minds. These thoughtful essays, representing many different academic disciplines, will hopefully usher Pietism back into evangelical discussions about faith and learning. They surely will inspire readers to think anew about the realities and ideals of Christ-centered higher education in the current age of 'spiritual but not religious' students.
-Douglas Jacobsen and Rhonda Hustedt Jacobsen,
authors of No Longer Invisible: Religion in University Education

Our friends at Bethel University here invite us not only to think about but to feel, imagine and even desire to actualize a Christian vision of higher education that engages not only heads but also hands and hearts. Herein is a robust call for a Christian university that is concerned about orthodoxy, orthopraxy, and orthopathy, and their interconnections. Evangelical thinking on these matters takes a quantum leap with this volume.
-Amos Yong,
professor of theology and mission, Fuller Seminary

I have been reading Chris Gehrz's blog 'The Pietist Schoolman' for several years and have been cheering him on as he makes a compelling and humble case for the compatibility of Pietism, the intellectual life and Christian higher education. Now Chris has gathered his academic brothers and sisters in the faith to continue the conversation. If you thought that 'pietist higher education' was an oxymoron, these essays will force you to think again.
-John Fea,
Messiah College

Unfairly blamed for the secularization of American colleges, Pietism has served as a source of renewal and revitalization. Channeling the insights of their German and Scandinavian forebears, Christopher Gehrz and his colleagues articulate a fresh understanding of Christian higher education. Emphasizing the religious virtues of humility and love, they show why Pietism's irenic sensibility is the perfect antidote to today's culture wars.
-John A. Schmalzbauer,
Blanche Gorman Strong Chair in Protestant Studies, Missouri State University

In The Pietist Vision of Christian Higher Education, Professor Gehrz makes a significant contribution to the growing literature exploring theological foundations for the life of the mind beyond the Reformed tradition. In this collection of essays, we are invited into a conversation that began among Professor Gehrz and his colleagues at Bethel University as they sought to discover the theological roots of their own institution. The book actually embodies the richness and the distinctiveness of the Pietist tradition's approach to higher education: first, the humility reflected in the careful, exploratory tone of the individual essays; second, the relational element exhibited in the collective wisdom of the entire group; finally, the impact on the heart as well as the mind, as readers are inspired and motivated to pursue a deeper understanding of their own theological roots.
-Shirley A. Mullen,
president and professor of history, Houghton College

Evangelicals want hearts and minds for Jesus Christ. Read why and how - from the university campus to the individual Christian.

president, National Association of Evangelicals

Editorial Reviews

" The Pietist Vision of Christian Higher Education is a significant work in that it defines and explains an underemphasized and even under-recognized tradition in Christian higher education. Editor Christopher Gehrz and colleagues articulate what Douglas and Rhonda Jacobsen have shown before: that the widely celebrated 'integration of faith and learning' concept is not the only viable model for explaining the mission of the Christian academy."
