Description
The study of religion in American higher education is fraught with difficulties that raise important questions about the nature of faith and the purpose of advanced learning, notes church historian D.G. Hart in this concise introduction to the subject. Although religion has been foundational to some of the United States's most prestigious universities, religious studies is a relatively recent addition to the liberal arts curriculum. As a result, students often take courses in religion with expectations that exceed what professors can actually deliver. Hart explores the conundrums of the ambiguous position of religious studies in the academy and offers advice about the best way to approach and benefit from the teaching and study of religion in contexts often hostile to faith. The book concludes with suggested readings and student resources.
