The Top Faith Animating Learning Books

for Each Discipline

Editor’s Note

Since the “top faith animating learning books” is subject to a wide degree of interpretation, I will say a note about this list.

  1. At the start the list includes a few general works related to the academic life in general as well as teaching.
  2. The rest of the books that focus on faith and learning in a particular discipline. Usually these works can help give the novice an orientation regarding the faith-learning conversation in the particular field. The list purposely left out the fields of Biblical Studies, Theology and Church History apart from a general list of some classic texts since those will be heavily influenced by theological tradition.
  3. This list is not necessarily a list of books that might exemplify excellent scholarship by Christians in a field (e.g., George Marsden’s biography of Jonathan Edwards). Perhaps in the future we will create such a list. Right now, this list is meant to be a resource for faculty development or Christian graduate students trying to familiarize themselves with the faith-learning conversation in general or the one taking place in their field or discipline.

Please feel free to send me further suggestions.
