About the book:

Professing in the Postmodern Academy examines the landscape of religiously affiliated higher education in America from the perspective of faculty members who are critically committed to the future of church-related institutions. The book includes chapters on a variety of topics from members of the Rhodes Consultation on the Future of the Church-Related College, a project that has involved ninety church-related institutions since 1996. The book features an introduction by Stephen R. Haynes, director of the Rhodes Consultation, that reviews twentieth-century scholarship on religiously affiliated higher education; chapters on the church-related college's "postmodern opportunity" by Paul Lakeland, Margaret Falls-Corbitt, and William Cahoy; considerations of the academic vocation by Richard Kyte, Elizabeth Newman, and John Neary; treatments of pedagogy and praxis by Julia O'Brien, Timothy Beal, and Dominic Scibilia; studies of mission and curriculum by Keith Graber Miller, Marcia Bunge, Jonathan Grieser, and Corrie Norman; and an afterword by Haynes. The book provides a unique and innovative contribution to the literature on religion and higher education by giving voice to outstanding junior faculty willing to imagine a creative and vibrant future for the American church-related college. FIRST IN A NEW SERIES Our new series, "Issues in Religion and Higher Education," will include both monographs and edited works studying the relationship of religious identity, tradition, and academic study to higher education.
