This is an authoritative overview of the positive relationship between faith and reason and their role in today's university education. The purpose of this volume is to offer an authoritative overview of the positive relationship between faith and reason, the latter understood as different mode of philosophy. It will also show that despite important variations and differences, the manner in which Christan faith is able to interact with other intellectual disciplines is grounded in theology and is required by theology. Finally it will ground the overall project of 'Religion and the University' firmly in different ecclesial communities within the Christian family and differing theological-philosophical orientations that might be trans-denominational. "Religion and the University" is concerned with the revitalisation of Christian culture through the reform of the University, and more widely with the revitalisation of religious culture through University education.
