Ten Myths of Higher Christian Education
This article represents a departure from the normal pattern of a journal in that it purports to offer no research findings, statistical reports, citation documentation, or academic analyses. Rather it reflects the views of a veteran administrator and teacher who has spent forty years on college and seminary campuses. It attempts to defend the faith-based nature of our particular kind of institutions and, more specifically, to point out myths that have grown up like moss on north-facing rocks. There is no point here to preview the ten myths, but simply to request the readership to accept at face value what these words represent, the personal and often nostalgic reflections of one who has given his life to Christian higher education.
