Item Description...
Christian Liberal Arts articulates the practical, pedagogical, and theological reasons why Christian liberal arts colleges are distinctive in the world of American higher education. Mannoia enumerates the intrinsic and instrumental values of Christian liberal arts, and how both should forcefully shape an institution's goals. He suggests that Christian colleges should strive to help their students go beyond the extremes of dogmatism and skepticism to achieve critical commitment. Colleges must also aid their students to adjust to real world problems without sacrificing academic quality. Mannoia believes that the solution to this challenge must inevitably integrate multiple disciplines, values and learning, and theory with practice, a process from which both faculty and graduates will acquire the capacity to resolve the thorniest dilemmas facing society and the Christian community.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A distinctive liberal arts education?  Jul 25, 2000
James Mannoia's Christian Liberal Arts: An Education That Goes Beyond, makes the case for how and why colleges and universities that hold themselves out as distinctively Christian and liberal arts institutions "...can go beyond traditions..." to produce graduates who can address real world problems, and are committed to do so.

The book addresses what "Christian liberal arts" means. Part I defines the concept of "critical commitment", covers what critical commitment means and addresses why it ought to be a distinctive for Christian colleges.

Part II covers issues that must be considered for a liberal arts education to be valuable in addressing real world problems and makes the case for a strong inter-disciplinary component of integrative scholarship.

Part III provides ideas about an approach for providing Christian liberal arts through the curriculum and constituencies of a particular community.

The author values the liberal arts tradition and seeks to articulate distinctives for the "Christian" liberal arts.

This book would be useful for anyone contemplating a liberal arts education (parent or student), including distinctively Christian colleges. It could be valuable to any liberal arts college and university rethinking its values or visions. This would be a particularly valuable tool for Christian colleges and universities in the process of looking at strategy, values or vision for the future.
