Interest in church-related higher education increased greatly in recent years, and books and articles are available that sharpen the sense of mission and provide necessary theological and theoretical foundations for the work of church-related colleges and universities. Yet what actually happens in the classroom has been largely overlooked. Teaching as an Act of Faith is a practical guidebook on strategies to incarnate mission and epitomize theological and theoretical reflection in the classroom. In original essays, distinguished practitioners from fourteen liberal arts disciplines and Roman Catholic, Wesleyan, Anabaptist, Lutheran, and Reformed traditions demonstrate how they have been able link religious values more directly to their teaching.
