Higher Education

Mark Noll’s 1995 Scandal of the Evangelical Mind cri de coeur rallied many Christians to create a more robust life of the mind and oppose the movement’s latent anti-intellectualism. A generation (and many significant academic developments) later, new challenges have emerged. Ever-rising costs of higher education place a strain on students, especially amid a challenging economy. Christian colleges’ commitments on sexuality, human origins, and the authority of Scripture are constantly challenged. And within Christian academies, administrators and scholars are still debating exactly what it is they’re trying to do.
