Case Studies in the Campus Ministry.
Welsh, Clement W. (Ed.)
This collection of essays on the campus ministry attempts to stimulate interest in developing an efficacious, contemporary role for religion in campus life. An introduction by Clement W. Welch states the place and relationship of the church in the academic community. A section of descriptive essays follows. John J. Kirvan, C.S.P., describes the Newman program at Wayne State University. Richard F. Tombaugh presents the purpose, rationale, and organization of the Experimental Campus Ministry. Harry E. Smith suggests several models for campus ministry. E. A. Vastyan reports on a Medical Ministry at the University of Texas. Donald W. Shriver, Jr. discusses relationships between campus ministry and the community. John D. Cannon describes roles and responsibilities of a university chaplain. The four critical essays include "The Fringe Becomes the Center--In a Topsy-Turvy World," by Joseph Axelrod, "Theological Reflections on the New Ministry," by Roger A. Johnson, "A Sociological Perspective on Campus Ministry Styles," by Karl C. Garrison, Jr., and "A Note on the Marginal Man," by Benson R. Snyder. (BP)
