Publisher's Description

The study of religion in American higher education is fraught with difficulties that raise important questions about the nature of faith and the purpose of advanced learning. Although religion has been foundational to some of the United States’ most prestigious universities, religious studies is a relatively recent addition to the liberal arts curriculum. As a result, students often take courses in religion with expectations that exceed what professors can actually deliver. D. G. Hart explores the conundrums of the ambiguous position of religious studies in the academy and offers advice about the best way to approach and benefit from the teaching and study of religion in contexts often hostile to faith.

Dee, 2002).

Editorial Reviews

"This book, the twelfth of ISI Books’ guides to the major disciplines, written for college students and concerned parents, helps students know what they are getting into. The body of the book offers a quick history of the university’s religious roots and an analysis of the academic problem with religion, including the value and the weakness of postmodern arguments for introducing religious perspectives into universities formed by Enlightenment assumptions." —Touchstone
