Ivers, John J. – Journal of Invitational Theory and Practice, 2012
A couple of decades ago, a visiting anthropologist agreed with some U.S. authors that the American intellectual on university campuses is basically dead and his/her demise is reflected in the superficial, boring, and uninspiring content to which students are exposed.

Evidence of Christian privilege in America is not difficult to find.

In this article, the author proposes that the notion of America be reintroduced as the "shining city on a hill," that abiding image from American history.
