A Theology of Higher Education

This chapter begins with various authors concerned to raise a distinctively Christian voice within secular higher education, arguing that Christians can participate in distinctive ways in the ordinary practices of secular academic reason. It moves on to authors such as Stanley Hauerwas, for whom the ordinary practices of secular academic reason themselves come into the theological spotlight, and who raise serious questions about the supposed neutrality of these practices. It finishes with the work of a selection of Anglican theologians who have, in different ways, suggested that the ordinary practices of secular academic reason are already shaped towards God’s purposes, and might be opened to them more deeply.

Keywords:   Christian education, Christian universities, Christian colleges, George Marsden, Nicholas Wolterstorff, Stanley Hauerwas, Rowan Williams, David Ford, Daniel W. Hardy, Timothy Jenkins
