Conceiving the Christian College by Duane Litfin

  • Jeffrey Guernsey


In Conceiving the Christian College (2004, Eerdmans), Duane Litfin, President of Wheaton College, has written a clarion call, particularly relevant to those who desire to think more deeply about the foundational principles of a Christcentered college. The author reconsiders ‘old’ thoughts -asking us to look anew at them, and deeply examines many issues impacting Christcentered education. Personally, I found my thoughts challenged and energized because of reading this book (and having discussed it with a group of colleagues). Not coincidentally, our department was at the same time working to craft a vision statement, during which I found myself thinking frequently about Litfin’s ideas.
