This volume offers a fresh report and interpretation of the intersection of two great contemporary movements: the rapid growth of higher education worldwide and the rise of global Christianity. It features empirical and evaluative studies by scholars from Africa, Asia, North America, and South America.
Christian Higher Education: A Global Reconnaissance visits some of the hot spots of Christian university development—including South Korea, Kenya, and Nigeria—and compares development there to development in Canada, the United States, and Europe—where Christian higher education has a long history. This volume fills a gap in research on the scope and direction of Christian higher education worldwide.
