Reviews - What do customers think about On Being a Christian in the Academy: Nicholas Wolterstorff and the Practice of Christian Scholarship (Paternoster Theological Monographs)?
Useful for Christian scholars Jul 11, 2005
The book offers an overview of Nicholas Wolterstorff's theory of rationality and scholarly practice. It is a published dissertation, and so focuses determinedly on that one topic (and not, for instance, on Wolterstorff's ideas on other topics, such as teaching or art) and sticks to systematic exposition of the concepts without many examples, so it is not a light read. Nevertheless, Wolterstorff's theory is one of the most cogent and important attempts to describe a positive role for belief in theory construction and weighing, and anyone interested in the recent resurgence of interest in the relationship between religion and higher education who has not already examined Wolterstorff's work will find here a lucid and helpful exposition. Even having read much of Wolterstorff's work, I found it helpful to have the themes brought together systematically.
