Contours and Contexts of Christian Scholarship

Show Summary Details


The intermingling of faith and learning that takes place in Christian scholarship is often unpredictable, usually multi-directional, and always complex. Because of that, Christian scholars, whether Catholic or Protestant, will sometimes find themselves caught between the differing expectations of church and academy. But done well, faith-informed scholarship and academically shaped faith can be a boon to both the churches and the academy.
