Customer Questions & Answers for
Brazos Press The Outrageous Idea of Academic Faithfulness

Most Christian college students separate their academic life from attending church, Bible study, and prayer. Too often discipleship of the mind is overlooked if not ignored altogether. However, Donald Opitz and Derek Melleby issue a clarion call to students to integrate their faith and learning in The Outrageous Idea of Academic Faithfulness. Colossians 2:3, after all, indicates that in Christ himself are "all treasures of wisdom and knowledge."

In eight succinct chapters, the authors stress the importance of academic discipleship and taking studies seriously. According to Opitz and Melleby, a Christian worldview---or biblical gestalt---brings unity to the fragmented curriculum of higher education. Each breezy chapter concludes with thought-provoking discussion questions as well as recommendations for further reading.

Written for a narrative generation, this guide extracts illustrations from the Book of Daniel, The Lord of the Rings, the experiences of real students, and more. This book is an excellent gift for college-bound seniors in high school. It's essential reading for first-year college students, too. Last, The Outrageous Idea of Academic Faithfulness will benefit professors, pastors, and parents.
