Academic Freedom and Christian Scholarship.
Diekema, Anthony J.
This book reflects on the scholarly literature on academic freedom and the personal experience of an educator with 20 years experience as a college president.

The chapters are: (1) Introduction; (2) The Search for Definition; (3) Threats to Academic Freedom; (4) Academic Freedom in the Context of Worldview; (5) Policy Development in the Christian College: Modest Proposals; and (6) Reflections: Toward an Ethos of Freedom.
