Taking Every Thought Captive

Taking Every Thought Captive celebrates forty years of the Christian Scholar's Review by collecting a representation of the best scholarship to appear in its pages from inception in 1970 through 2010.

Over its forty years of publication, CSR has had two main objectives: ''the integration of Christian faith and learning on both the intra- and inter-disciplinary levels'' and ''to provide a forum for the discussion of the theoretical issues of Christian higher education.'' The twenty-four articles gathered in this anniversary collection reflect both of these objectives. As a whole, this collection witnesses to the rigors of the intellectual enterprise found within the pages of CSR and affirms an ongoing commitment to support, enhance, and promote Christian scholarship.

Contributors include: Carl F. H. Henry, Arthur F. Holmes, George Marsden, Mary Stewart Van Leeuwen, Stanley Hauerwas, Richard J. Mouw, Mark A. Noll, Dallas Willard, Elizabeth Newman, Roger Lundin, Nancy Ammerman, Nicholas Wolterstorff, and fifteen others.


This is a truly impressive volume, a landmark collection of distinctive as well as distinguished articles by outstanding Christian scholars from the past four decades. Perhaps nowhere else could one hope to find gathered together such a superbly indicative witness to the conversation generated by evangelical scholars in America during this period."

David Lyle Jeffrey, Distinguished Professor of Literature and the Humanities, Baylor University

"An invaluable compendium of classic essays on Christian higher education and scholarship, Taking Every Thought Captive brings together a veritable who's who in Christian academic thought. Both new faculty and seasoned veterans alike will find this volume an excellent resource for thinking about and discussing the role of the Christian scholar today."

Susan VanZanten, Professor of English, Seattle Pacific University

"For four decades the Christian Scholar's Review has led the way in encouraging Christian thinking about how to love and serve God intellectually. This book offers some of the best writing and thinking that the journal has produced. "

Joel A. Carpenter, Director of the Nagel Institute for the Study of World Christianity, Calvin College
