Christianity and Higher
Education: A Selected
THE LITERATURE ON Christian higher education has expanded exponentially over the past five decades. The bibliography that appears below does not presume to be exhaustive, but it does claim to be representative of the types of studies available to the interested reader (excluding institutional histories—the number of which is astronomical). A reader desiring a more detailed bibliography can go to www.iupui.edu/~raac/html/ bibhographies.html, Web site for the Center for the Study of Religion and American Culture directed by Conrad Cherry, which maintains a well-annotated set of bibliographies.
The first section of the present bibliography lists significant works from the formative period of modern writing on churchrelated higher education (1940–1980). The second section provides an extensive listing of the most important studies of the past twenty-two years broken down into general and confessional categories. While a number of the studies cited below are authored or edited by scholars within one of the five traditions surveyed in this present anthology, unless the particular volume has a strong confessional theme, such studies will be found in the general category for the contemporary period.
This bibliography is intended as a complement to the disciplinary bibliographies provided by each of the contributors to this volume.
