Description

Christianity and the Secular Border Patrol: The Loss of Judeo-Christian Knowledge centrally looks at how secular universities have dominated academic knowledge on the one hand and have also been a part of bias against Christian academics on the other. Authors generally ask for borders of understanding and collegial dialogue to bridge gaps of knowledge that exist because of this bias. Theoretical analysis and narratives from the field describe how overcoming extreme theoretical positions may allow for productive knowledge construction and a more harmonious relationship within the culture wars of our times, especially in higher education.

Review Text

"I am personally looking forward to using Christianity and the Secular Border Patrol in a rhetoric class. Along with the current work of theorists like Je rey Ringer and Elizabeth Vander Lei, this is work that helps academics to understand and argue for an intellectual landscape that is comprehensive, inclusive, and relevant."
(Ryan K Strader, International Journal of Christianity & Education 22(2)/2018)
