Commitment and Connection: Service-learning and Christian Higher Education
Gail Gunst Heffner, Claudia DeVries Beversluis
University Press of America, 2002 - Education - 214 pages
This book highlights the work of faculty in many disciplines who have connected service-learning with their teaching and scholarship. The challenge of Christian scholarship in service-learning is to use the scholarly tool of our disciplines, with perspective and goals originating from the faith tradition, to describe how community connections enable us to be agents of renewal in society.
