This month is steaming hot of conferences as campus ministries take advantage of spring breaks and holidays. Council of Christian Scholarly Societies and Baylor’s University’s Institute for Faith and Learning will be sponsoring a national conference titled: "Christianity and the Soul of the University: Faith as a Foundation for Intellectual Community.” The even will be held March 25-27, at Baylor University in Waco, Texas.
As one Inter Varsity staff put it, "Christianity and the Soul of the University" will explore the role that reflective Christian faith can play in unifying the intellectual life of the university... It will underscore the enduring place that Christian faith should hold as scholars consider how they are called to intellectual labor and how they regard their disciplines."
Over 25 organizations have signed-up to participate.
Confirmed plenary session speakers include:
Laura Spelman Rockefeller Professor of Social and Political Ethics, University of Chicago Divinity School
Professor of History and Provost, Calvin College
Professor of New Testament, Duke Divinity School
Distinguished Professor of Literature and Humanities and Senior Vice Provost, Baylor University
President Emeritus of Queen's College and Professor of Mathematical Physics, Cambridge University
