This volume will show how various intellectual disciplines (most found within the modern university) can learn from theology and philosophy in primarily methodological and substantitive terms. It will explore the possible ways in which current presuppositions and practices of the displine might be challenged. It will also indicate the possibilities of both a "Christian Culture" in relation to that discipline or the way in which that discipline might look within a real or theoretical Christian university.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Finally, a book that takes on the difference Christianity might or should make for how the disciplines of the university are pursued. This is essential reading for Christian and non-Christian alike.' - Stanley Hauerwas, Gilbert T. Rowe Professor of Theological Ethics, Duke Divinity School, USA. -- Stanley Hauerwas
There is a wealth of content in these pages . . . Hopefully [it] will be read by many in the fields examined in this book, or even ones not directly addressed, and they will be inspired to think through their own approach as Christians as they present their subject to their students. -- Andrew C. Palfreyman * Journal of Education and Christian Belief *
[This] book is the most substantial anthology of multidisciplinary engagement with theology, and as such will be of profit to academic leaders seeking to foster a more integrated intellectual life among faculty in Christian colleges and universities. * Theological Studies *
