Introduction

Abstract

The purpose of this book is to put flesh on the notion of being consecrated to learning as a Christian academic in higher education and to cast light on many themes and issues that are central to the work of Christian scholars in the contemporary university. Chapter  1 identifies three memories of the author that motivated him to write this book, warns of possible dangers to avoid in tackling the contentious topic of the relationship between Christian faith and the tasks of an academic, and then summarises a range of different interpretations of this relationship. The book’s underlying rationale is explained, followed by an overview of the structure and coverage of the book, along with an acknowledgement of its omissions and limitations.
