Why You Need SCS…Why SCS Needs You
“Contemporary Christian scholarship will not realize its potential unless it can establish a strong institutional base. Isolated individuals in university culture can make impressive efforts here and there, but unless their voices are united, they will be lost in the general cacophony of the contemporary academy.”
George Marsden, The Outrageous Idea of Christian Scholarship, 101
Christian scholars need local and global unity in order to best serve Jesus in the academy. SCS desires to be an institutional base that makes Marsden’s challenge a reality.
