Intersections: Faith, Church, and the Academy
Preparing Leaders for an Interfaith World
Colleges strive to educate students for leadership in communities, businesses, churches, governments, and the academy, and they must also prepare them for an increasingly religiously pluralistic world by offering opportunities for interfaith cooperation.
This book shows the innovation and inspired engagement happening on United Methodist-related colleges and universities. While crafted to serve the needs of church leaders, administrators, and faculty, students are the most important audience for this volume, because they are best positioned to re-shape our world in ways that respond to the increased diversity within our communities.
