Making Higher Education Christian: The History and Mission of Evangelical Colleges in America

Reviewer Neil J. Flinders

The editors of this anthology use twenty-one contributors to explore the heritage, vision, and mission of evangelical colleges in the United States. A majority of the essays were originally presented as part of a conference on "The Task of Evangelical Higher Education." The book is timely in that evangelical Protestants have in recent years assumed a significant role in American politics, as evidenced, for example, in the contributions of the Christian coalition identified as the "Moral Majority" to the election of Ronald Reagan, and in the attention given to candidates Jesse Jackson and Pat Robertson—both ordained ministers—during the 1988 presidential campaign.
