The history of Calvin College is a fascinating one. The school's rise to prominence on the landscape of Christian higher education has been accompanied by important milestones in its relationship with the Christian Reformed Church. This volume chronicles the development of Calvin College, focusing in particular on the interaction and mutual influence between the college and the church.In recounting the history of the relationship between Calvin College and the CRC, Harry Boonstra covers a wide range of pragmatic themes, including curriculum, student conduct, student publications, faculty hiring, and faculty views. But he also delves into broader areas, such as issues of theology, philosophy, geology, film, music, and card playing.While of particular interest to readers connected with Calvin College or with the Christian Reformed Church, this study will also benefit students of American church history and those interested in the development of church-sponsored higher education.
