Item Description...
In her book Finding God at Harvard, Kelly Monroe brought together the stories of thinking Christians whose search for truth led them to Veritas---in the person of Jesus Christ. Now she tells the story of her own journey into wonder and discovery, which took her beyond the ivied walls of Harvard to universities across the country. In the midst of the arid skepticism of the academy, she found a vibrant, interdisciplinary community unafraid of facing life's toughest questions, embracing the quest for true knowledge with intellectual rigor, delight and joy. As The Veritas Forum grappled with the insights of the academy's brightest Christian scholars, Kelly came to realize that truth or Veritas is no mere abstract concept but the very light by which we see all things.

Engaging narrative and provocative content come together in this mind-stretching and heart-challenging journey. Come with Kelly on an intellectual road trip as The Veritas Forum explores the deepest questions of the university world, and the culture at large. And discover for yourself that Veritas transcends philosophy or religion and instead brings true life.

Intellect and belief don't have to clash  Mar 1, 2007
Kelly Monroe Kullberg's latest book, Finding God Beyond Harvard: The Quest for Veritas is a follow-up to Finding God at Harvard: Spiritual Journeys of Thinking Christians, which Monroe (sans Kullberg) edited a decade ago.

Harvard, now best known as the flagship of the Ivy League schools, was founded in 1636 so that, according to Kullberg, "students might be free to know truth and life in relation to Jesus Christ." A 1643 brochure quoted in the Harvard Guide indicates Harvard existed "`[t]o advance Learning and perpetuate it to Posterity; dreading to leave an illiterate Ministry to the Churches.'"

But by the last decade of the 20th century when Monroe arrived at Harvard to research and write a thesis entitled `The Gospel in the Information Age,' the gospel of Jesus Christ seemed nowhere to be found. At Harvard Divinity School, of all places, Kullberg was disillusioned to discover that pretty much any belief was welcome, from paganism to eco-feminism--except belief in Jesus Christ.

But in the midst of her disillusionment, God showed Kullberg, as he had Elijah after Elijah's confrontation with Jezebel's priests, that she was not the only believer still left in the land. A friend connected her with the Harvard Graduate School Christian Fellowship, and she discovered a place where "the gospel was passionately discussed by students in the Schools of Law, Business, Medicine, Government, Design, Arts and Sciences. For the first time since coming to Harvard," Kullberg writes, "I saw joy." Out of this small beginning grew not only the book, Finding God at Harvard, a compilation of the stories of many of the believers Kullberg came to know at Harvard, but also the Veritas Forum, a ministry that, along with Kullberg's personal faith journey, is the subject of Finding God Beyond Harvard.

With passion, honesty, and a humble spirit, Kullberg recounts the story of the Veritas Forum's beginning. "It is thrilling," as Phillip E. Johnson writes in the January/February 2007 issue of Touchstone, "to read about how the Veritas movement began . . . how it grew from a novel lecture series to a way of life." But it is equally thrilling to read of Kullberg's own faith journey and how God brought her through the `dark night of the soul' that afflicts so many thinking Christians, ultimately restoring her to both spiritual and physical health.

Take the time to read Finding God Beyond Harvard: The Quest for Veritas. Read Finding God at Harvard, too. Together, these two books demonstrate that intellect doesn't have to be an impediment to belief. And Kullberg's sense of wonder and spirit of gratitude when she speaks of the Creator of the universe will strengthen your own faith and bring a blessing to your life. - Linda Whitlock, Christian Book
Thoughtfully Inspiring  Jan 5, 2007
This book spoke to me in ways that "how to" books and study guides have not. I have been concerned about students and our "institutions of higher learning" since reading about the exploits of Ward Churchill and troubled days at school.

An absorbing and moving discourse blends Christian insights with university analysis.  Oct 14, 2006
A satisfying blend of memoir and theology follows author Kelly Kullberg's search for God in Finding God Beyond Harvard: The Quest for Veritas. The Veritas Forum brings Christian principles to universities: it follows the author's love of God to the highest levels of understanding, identifying a group of Christian friends and scholars who are speakers, scientists, authors and lecturers. An absorbing and moving discourse blends Christian insights with university analysis.

The Beauty and Power of Christian Community  Aug 1, 2006
Kelly Monroe Kullberg's, Finding God Beyond Harvard, InterVarsity Press (2006), gives voice to the heart of Christian life in community with a power like that with which Dallas Winslow trumpets the intellectual force of the Gospel. It reveals the love of Christ experienced in a community of Christian friends that began at Harvard and that has spread across the continent and around the world. It manifests the power and beauty of Christian fellowship among an ever widening circle of men and women who burn brightly with the love of Christ. What a book!

Its power and beauty cannot be captured in a few quotations. Nonetheless, one small example gives a peek at its heart:

"By sacrificing his body, Jesus created a new form of community - the body of Christ around the world. There are people like my friends, stories like our stories, everywhere he is believed and obeyed. His sacrifice reconnects us to reality, to truth, to who God is, to a clear vision of who we are without him and who we are with him" Finding God Beyond Harvard, p. 177.

Such lofty sentiments arise from a story that reveals the gritty reality of real life friendships in the author's day to day personal experience. That experience is unfolded in a way that makes the reader feel like a participant.

One such group of Christian friends she has identified is a thirty-year circle that includes Luci Shaw, Phillip Yancey, Eugene Peterson, Madeleine L'Engle, Walter Wangerin, Richard Foster and John Hoyt. Speaking of that circle, Luci Shaw told Kelly that, "If not for not for one another, no one would have heard of any of us. Our lives are bound together." Ibid, p. 189.

This is one book, however, where the whole is far more than its parts. Wow!

3 stars  Jul 26, 2006
*** Veritas, a forum begun at Harvard that has since its inception spread across the country, is designed to help people search for the truth in a relativistic age. The founder of it and the author of this book explores her own search for ways to apply that truth in daily life. As she goes across the country helping Veritas be established in new locations, she learns new things that are documented herein. Though the writing is beautiful, it tends to ramble, and in the end, lacks focus. ***
