This book demonstrates that, despite much evidence to the contrary, there are still Christian colleges and universities of high academic quality that have also kept their religious heritages publicly relevant.Respected scholar Robert Benne explores how six schools from six different religious traditions -- Calvin College, Wheaton College, St. Olaf College, Valparaiso University, Baylor University, and the University of Notre Dame -- have maintained "quality with soul." These constructive case studies examine the vision, ethos, and personnel policies of each school, showing how and why its religious foundation remains strong.
