The call to teach means different things to different people. This collection contends, however, that, at the very least, faithful work in the teaching vocation involves excellence, commitment, and community. Representing diverse disciplines and institutional perspectives from a Christian research university, the contributors present reflections based on personal experience, empirical data, and theoretical models. This wide-ranging collection offers insight, encouragement, and a challenge to teachers in all areas of Christian higher education. Building upon the legacy of thoughtful teaching at Baylor University while looking toward the future of higher education, this collection is framed for Christians who teach in higher education but who are also committed to research and graduate training.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“This book stays refreshingly close to the ground, offering a winsome walking tour through the classrooms of master teachers. It presents the fruit of thoughtful educators investigating their own craft and the commitments that sustain it. If you need some inspiration combined with practical wisdom for your own teaching, there is much to be gleaned in these pages.”

—David I. Smith, Director, Kuyers Institute for Christian Teaching and Learning, Calvin University
