This collection of essays is a lively read not only for scholars, institutional administrators, and foundation officers, but for anyone interested in the evolving role of religion in American intellectual life over the last half century. This well-edited book is comprised of short, thought-provoking pieces from some of the country s leading lights in the humanities and social sciences. In first-person reflections, this collection offers a vivid and informative account of religion and scholarship over the last few decades and poses constructive questions for its future.

The connection between religion and higher education upsets some people and satisfies others, but this volume s eighteen essays plus epilog could please both parties.
