More About This Book

Overview

Each year, thousands of students from faith-based and church-related universities across the United States venture to the edge of the world. This book explores current efforts on the part of selected Christian universities to form globally engaged Christians through cultural immersion experiences. For the editors of this volume, "the edge of the world" is neither a place of physical remoteness where cell phone coverage runs out nor a region of economic marginality. Instead, it is a place of personal transformations, the point of convergence between the individual student's spiritual development and her commitment to global engagement. The formation of such students requires a holistic approach to education, one that connects knowledge with action and heart with head. In the study abroad context, holistic education emphasizes ethical formation, cultivation of empathy, the creation of deep communities, and commitment to social responsibility. This collection of essays is characterized by the diversity of its voices. The contributors represent a broad range of faith-based institutions and a wide array of academic disciplines. The study abroad programs they describe, scattered across five continents including North America, reflect a variety of models. Gathered into this pioneering collection are essays that theorize about the conjunction of spiritual formation and global engagement, share practices that are already bearing fruit, and identify potential areas of growth and improvement for the future.
