Faithful imagination in the academy : explorations in religious belief and scholarship( )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the past thirty years, there has been a sea change in North American intellectual life regarding the role of religious commitments in academic endeavors. Driven partly by postmodernism and the fragmentation of knowledge and partly by the democratization of the academy in which different voices are celebrated, the appropriate role that religion should play is contested. Some academics insist that religion cannot and must not have a place at the academic table; others insist that religious values should drive the argument." "Faithful Imagination in the Academy takes an approach based on dialogue with various viewpoints, claiming neither too much nor too little. All the authors are seasoned academics with many significant publications to their credit. While they all know how the academy operates and how to make worthwhile contributions in their respective disciplines, they are also Christians whose religious commitments are reflected in their intellectual work."--Jacket

History and the Christian historian( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume arises out of special concerns of historians who are also Christians. What case can be made for connecting historical work and religious convictions? What is the relation of faith to history? What difference could Christian perspectives make in historical study? Thirteen respected scholars - including some who have changed the face of history writing in the twentieth century - here take up a diversity of subjects in giving a provisional answer to these important questions. In exploring foundational issues of perspective and theory, engaging discrete themes such as feminism, puritanism, and missiology, and discussing the application of religious insights in teaching history, this excellent collection of essays forthrightly addresses the "epistemological crisis" brought on by the postmodern critique of truth and demonstrates the positive implications of a Christian perspective for the study of history and historiography."--Jacket

"For four decades, from 1951 to 1990, The Reformed Journal set the standard for top-notch, venturesome theological reflection on a broad range of issues. With a lively mix of editorial comment, articles, and reviews, it addressed topics as diverse as the civil rights movement, feminism, the Vietnam War, South African apartheid, the plight of Palestinian Christians, and the rise of the Christian Right, all from a Reformed perspective. In this anthology James Bratt and Ronald Wells have assembled select pieces that exemplify the Journal's position at the cutting edge of thoughtful Christian engagement with culture."--Publisher's description

California dreaming : society and culture in the golden state by Ronald Wells( )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

California matters, both as a place and as an idea. What famed historian Kevin Starr has called ""the California Dream"" is a vital part of American self-understanding. Just as America was meant to be a place of renewal, even redemption, for Europe, so too California was intended as a place of renewal for America. Therefore, California--place and idea--provides a fertile ground for scholars to think deeply about what it means to articulate ""the promise of American life."
