Teaching as an Act of Faith: Theory and Practice in Church-Related Higher Education

By Arlin C. Migliazzo | Go to book overview

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

This book began sometime in the late 1980s as a list of names hastily scratched on a three-by-five card. At that time I had visions of editing a book of essays by Christian historians regarding how they brought their particular faith perspectives to bear in the teaching of history. That idea blurred, faded, and reappeared by the mid 1990s as my reflection on church-related higher education broadened and my teaching practice deepened. A generous grant in 1996 from the Lilly Endowment through the agency of the Lilly Fellows Program in Humanities and the Arts based at Valparaiso University set in motion a chain of events that ultimately made this volume possible. From that three-by-five card to this finished manuscript, through all the false starts and the apparent cul-de-sacs, my family has been a source of constant encouragement. Thank you Judi, Sara, and Nate.

But no matter how much encouragement I received, there would be no manuscript without the exceptional scholar-teachers whose labor with me in this project has proved to be one of the most enlightening and instructive experiences in my professional life. So it is to Charles Wilber, Mary Stewart Van Leeuwen, Ron Kirkemo, Robert Clark, Harold Heie, Lois Kieffaber, Lee Anne Chaney, John Steven Paul, Edward Knippers, Charlotte Kroeker, Elizabeth Morelli, Arlin Meyer, Shirley Mullen, and Mike Ingram that I owe a tremendous debt of gratitude. Their thoughtful essays graphically demonstrate just how profoundly pedagogical practice can be informed by vibrant faith perspectives.

Numerous associates at the institutions I have been privileged to serve as well as friends and supporters scattered across the country have been helpful at various junctures during the gestation, birth, and delivery of this anthology.
