Summary "This collection of essays boldly challenges the liberal hegemony of higher education. Critiquing the current literature on church-based education for assuming the "naturalness" of liberal categories, these essays present a tantalizing thought experiment that wholly reimagines Christian university education. Essays on the roles of theology, scripture, the sciences, and the humanities "deconstruct the distinctions between fact (science), value (humanities), and application (professional studies) in order to articulate how the politics of the church transvalue such distinctions into the formation of a peaceable kingdom."" "Positing a church-centered definition of academic freedom, Conflicting Allegiances takes up questions of social and political witness in a liberal society, urging the formation of faculty and students into the body of Christ."--BOOK JACKET.
