Overview

In Christ Across the Disciplines, a group of distinguished scholars from across the theological spectrum explores the dynamic relationship between the Christian faith and the life of the mind. Although the essays in this volume are rooted in a rich understanding of the past, they focus primarily on how Christian students, teachers, and scholars might best meet the challenges of intellectual and cultural life in a global world.

This book ranges widely over the broad terrain of contemporary academic and cultural life, covering such topics as the enormous growth of political activism in late twentieth-century evangelicalism, the dynamics of literature and faith in the African-American experience, the dramatic implications of globalization for those who profess Christ and practice the life of the mind, and more!

In the Logos edition, Christ Across the Disciplines is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library.

Praise for the Print Edition

This pace-setting volume offers a most helpful account of the effort to ‘integrate faith and learning’ as that effort has been understood by Christian scholars and Christian colleges since mid-century. Even more, it shows many and varied ways for moving beyond ‘integration’ to other fruitful practices for promoting scholarship as faithful believers. It is a compelling book of unusual insight.

Mark Noll, Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame

An engrossing and enchanting collection filled with surprising sparklers, unsettling firecrackers, and even fireworks that explode in reframed conversations and new horizons of insight.

—Leonard Sweet, professor of evangelism, Drew University

Roger Lundin has assembled a stellar cast of Christian intellectuals to reflect on the difference that the lordship of Jesus Christ makes, or can make, to academic endeavors. Each contributor is deeply knowledgeable about the history of his or her discipline and brings theologically sophisticated analysis to bear on its possible futures. This is an indispensable resource for those who want to discern the most fruitful paths available for Christian intellectual life.

—Alan Jacobs, distinguished professor of the humanities, Baylor University
