Creative Calls for Coherence:
Christian Higher Education
For a limited time, Routledge is offering free access to an article from this special issue: "The Religious Roots of Ernest L. Boyer's Educational Vision: A Theology of Public Pietism," by Douglas Jacobsen & Rhonda Hustedt Jacobsen. Access this article for free until March 31, 2014.
L. Boyer’s creative call for coherence, or his compulsion to draw
together the frayed intellectual and/or social threads defining our
society, offers a powerful means of assessing his significant impact
on education. Although anecdotal evidence indicates Boyer’s ideas
influenced a number of Christian colleges and universities, no
systematic efforts come to terms with this influence. This theme
issue attempts to provide some basic frameworks for further research
efforts while also looking at the impact Boyer’s Christian college
experiences had upon him.
