THE CHRISTIAN TEACHER

The author, Dr. Perry Le Fevre, is moved to write this significant book because of the renaissance of religion in American higher education in the past quarter century. Its chapters are talks to Christian teachers as they face their teaching task in this changed and challenging situation. He is concerned with helping to answer two questions: ""What are the Christian teachers' concerns in higher education?"" and ""What difference does it make in an individual's teaching if he takes both his teaching and his Christian faith seriously?"" The distinguishing mark of the Christian teacher is his sense of calling. He is to exercise that calling within a particular profession. Some of the ways to do this within the various academic disciplines and relationships make this book a most necessary one for all who teach or administer in colleges and universities as convinced Christians.
