Finding God at Harvard: Spiritual Journeys of Thinking Christians

Front Cover
Kelly Monroe
Zondervan, Sep 18, 1997 - Biography & Autobiography - 368 pages
Ari Goldman's best-selling book, The Search for God at Harvard, chronicled his search for signs of genuine religious faith at Harvard Divinity School. The New York Times reporter concluded that God was not very evident at the prestigious Ivy League campus. Kelly Monroe reveals another picture of Christian faith in a secular intellectual setting. In Finding God at Harvard, she presents the compelling testimonies of forty-two faculty members, former students, and distinguished orators at Harvard. Their candid reflections explode the myth that Christian faith cannot survive a rigorous intellectual atmosphere. Finding God at Harvard speaks to the emptiness that haunts college campuses across the country -- an emptiness that only Truth can fill. As Monroe's contributors so vividly show that truth is available to everyone, Monroe reveals another picture of Christian faith in a secular intellectual setting. In Finding God at Harvard, she presents the compelling testimonies of forty-two faculty members, former students, and distinguished orators at Harvard. Their candid reflections explode the myth that Christian faith cannot survive a rigorous intellectual atmosphere. Finding God at Harvard speaks to the emptiness that haunts college campuses across the country - an emptiness that only Truth can fill.
