About this book
This book offers a Christian engagement with the realities of academic life and work. Examining this topic from intellectual, institutional and spiritual perspectives, the author explores how the two identities – as a Christian and an academic – can both coexist and complement one another. The author provides a ‘road map’ for academics demonstrating the interaction between religious faith and the responsibilities, challenges and opportunities of university scholarship and teaching. Addressing questions such as the contentious nature of religious faith in the university environment, the expression of faith within the role of professor, and the consequences of consecrating oneself to learning, this pioneering and practical volume will be relevant to Christian scholars in any academic discipline.

“This book is a veritable treasure-chest for the teacher who wants to learn more about learning and teaching. … John Sullivan’s book is, like the middle-aged judge in Shakespeare’s seven ages of man, ‘full of wise saws and modern instances.’ … I heartily recommend this book to all teachers who aspire to be consecrated to learning.” (John Shortt, International Journal of Christianity & Education, Vol. 22 (03), November, 2018)
