Item description for Faith and Knowledge by Douglas Sloan...

Sloan explores the impact that the Protestant theological renaissance (1925-1960) had on American colleges and universities, focusing in particular on the church's most significant claim to have a continuing voice in higher education. He traces the role of the national ecumenical and denominational organizations, and studies the changing place of college chaplains.

Publishers Description

In this book, Douglas Sloan explores the impact that the Protestant theological renaissance had on American colleges and universities. In particular, Sloan focuses on the church's most significant claim to have a continuing voice in higher education: its particular ability to demonstrate a connection between faith and the dominant modern conceptions of knowledge. Sloan looks at the ways the mainline Protestant churches did, and did not, deal effectively with this faith-knowledge situation and the subsequent cessation of the church's large-scale engagement with American higher education.

Reviews - What do customers think about Faith and Knowledge?

Notable  Nov 6, 2008
Far from the complete story. By its own account, the book does not cover how or where the Catholic Church engaged higher education during the 1930's through the 1960's. What is covered, however, is remarkable. From the Christian Scholar to William G. Pollard.
