Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. The Vocation of a Christian Scholar: Or How Christian Life Can Sustain the Life of the Mind, 2d, ed.

Richard T. Hughes's highly praised book on the relationship between Christian faith and secular learning--originally published as How Christian Faith Can Sustain the Life of the Mind--is now available in a revised edition that brilliantly incorporates recent interest in the topic of vocation. While the vocational dimensions of the earlier book were implicit, this revised edition makes them explicit. In the first of two completely new chapters, Hughes recounts his own vocational journey, telling how he drew on Christian theology to discover his talents and how best to use them. The second new chapter focuses on the vocation of Christian colleges and universities, including the purpose and goals of church-related education. The story offered here provides a compelling argument that faith, properly pursued, nourishes the openness and curiosity that make a life of the mind possible.
