About-

The Toronto 2018 Symposium on Christian Higher Education provided an opportunity for leaders in the Canadian Christian higher education movement to reflect deeply on its development, current reality, and future possibilities. The Canadian Christian higher education scene comprises a wide range of institutions, including Christian universities, Bible colleges, and seminaries and graduate schools. Each type has its own distinctive history and likewise represents both challenges and opportunities. Even though they are intertwined in their common purpose, these higher educational institutions express this purpose in various ways. This volume is a collection of the papers and plenary talks designed to share the content of the symposium with a wider audience. The papers are all written by active scholars and researchers who are connected to the member institutions of Christian Higher Education Canada (CHEC). They not only illustrate the quality of the scholarship at these institutions, but they make their own critical contribution to an ongoing discussion regarding the role and place of Christian higher education within the wider society. This volume is intended to be helpful to students, faculty, staff, board members, and supporters of Canadian and other Christian higher education institutions, as well as interested individuals and scholars.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“In Christian Higher Education in Canada, Porter and Fawcett curate a deeply meaningful collection of works produced by highly respected scholars and practitioners. Read as a whole, the volume reflects on the past, considers the present, and envisions a future for Canadian Christian higher education. Balancing a distinctly Christian perspective with abundantly sound scholarship, Porter and Fawcett provide a compelling, must-read anthology that yields highly contextualized insights into the status and place of Christian higher education in Canada.”

—Shirley V. Hoogstra, President, Council for Christian Colleges and Universities



“As one who has benefited from and contributed to Canadian Christian higher education for over thirty years, I rejoice over this volume’s informative, troubling, challenging, constructive, and hopeful essays. Addressing the past, present, and future of Canada’s Christian colleges, universities, and seminaries, this collection should be required reading for ministers, faculty, administrators, board members, and educational historians who have a stake in the movement. In the spirit of that great educator, St. Augustine: Tolle lege!”

—David Guretzki, Executive Vice President and Resident Theologian, The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada
