About this Book
This imaginative study rethinks the nature of theology and its role in universities.
- The author sketches out a fascinating project using examples from US and UK institutions, whereby theology becomes a transformative force within universities.
- Imagines what a Christian university, in which all disciplines have been theologized, would look like.
- Feeds into discussions about the religious identity of denominationally-linked colleges and universities.
- Forms part of a wider attempt to imagine a vital public role for theology that enables it to serve both the Church and the wider community.
