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.
