Creating Confessional Colleges and Universities That Confess
Alleman, Nathan F.; Glanzer, Perry L.
Journal of Education & Christian Belief, v18 n1 p13-28 2014
Drawing upon the recent scholarly call to incorporate Christian practices into teaching, we contend that such practices should also be incorporated into the administration of Christian institutions. In particular, we explore the rationale for integrating the practice of Christian confession into the life of a university to address institutional sin. We then describe two types of confessional practice, ritual and situational, that perhaps should be grafted into the life of Christian educational institutions.
