520    For over forty years, Leland Ryken has championed and 
       modeled a Christian liberal arts education. His 
       scholarship and commitment to integrating faith with 
       learning in the classroom have influenced thousands of 
       students who have sat under his winsome teaching. 
       Published in honor of Professor Ryken and presented on the
       occasion of his retirement from Wheaton College, this 
       compilation carries on his legacy of applying a Christian 
       liberal arts education to all areas of life. Five sections
       explore the background of a Christian liberal arts 
       education, its theological basis, habits and virtues, 
       differing approaches, and ultimate aims. Contributors 
       including Philip Ryken, Jeffry Davis, Duane Litfin, John 
       Walford, Alan Jacobs, and Jim Wilhoit analyze liberal arts
       as they relate to the disciplines, the Christian faith, 
       and the world. Also included are a transcript of a well-
       known 1984 chapel talk delivered by Leland Ryken on the 
       student's calling and practical chapters on how to read, 
       write, and speak well. Comprehensive in scope, this 
       substantial volume will be a helpful guide to anyone 
       involved in higher education, as well as to students, 
       pastors, and leaders looking for resources on the 
       importance of faith in learning. - Publisher.
