What's Lutheran About Higher Education?
Lutheran Educational Conference of North America, Washington, DC.
The papers and proceedings of the 60th Annual convention of the Lutheran Educational Conference of North America are presented. The first paper, What's Lutheran About Higher Education?, discusses whether an institution, a college, seminary, or university can regard itself as an embodiment of the western tradition of higher learning if it abrogates the freedom of investigation. The second paper, What's Lutheran About Higher Education? Theological Presuppositions, suggests that the closer one advances toward that center where humanity was more substantively the object of studies, the more it would make a difference whether the general view of man from which one proceeded was Christian or something else. The third paper, Should We Be More Assertive About Our Christian Values?--A Constitutional Perspective, suggests that in view of the explicit constitutional policy in favor of religious liberty it would be anomalous to suggest, on the one hand, that it must renounce the religious aspects of its programs. Finally, Church School, Public Servant, suggests that the present situation in the world gives a good illustration of the need for combining the distinctive ministry of the church with the public service of general education.
