About this item

There has been much dialogue among higher education scholars regarding the implications of the emergent postmodern paradigm, and thought leaders in the evangelical world have noted with concern the postmodern challenge to exclusivist truth claims. However, few have sought to situate the challenges Christian higher education faces within the larger shifts in practice taking place across the wider postsecondary sector. This volume is the first to describe an empirically-informed model for Christian colleges and universities to successfully address the challenges of postmodernity.

This volume broadly draws upon recent cultural and philosophical history to describe the present institutional context, using organizational theory to explore the competing demands found within the Christian college’s key constituencies. It introduces new testing models for institutional practice, and concludes with a consideration of how institutional fallibilism might contribute to a reconstructed public sphere in postmodernity.
