Overview

This excellent collection of essays and pieces - occasioned by the inauguration of Gaylen J. Byker as the eighth president of Calvin College in October 1995 - addresses questions of significance not only for those affiliated with Calvin College but also for Christian higher education on the national level. Written by a diverse group of distinguished scholars, these lively papers chart the course of development now being pursued at Calvin College and suggest new directions for America's academic culture. Together these essays probe issues of importance for Calvin College's present and future and, at the same time, raise issues significant to the life and work of other North American Christian colleges. Keeping Faith offers readers everywhere a bold challenge to eschew a shallow consensus on the deep questions and to develop a world-and-life view that answers to the realities of a dynamically changing world on the threshold of the twenty-first century.
