Watch the Entire Series of Talks Previewing Our Book on Pietism and Higher Education

Last Thursday morning in the Bethel University Library, philosopher David Williams (Azusa Pacific University) returned to his alma mater to give the seventh and final talk in a series previewing chapters from Whole and Holy Persons: A Pietist Approach to Christian Higher Education (forthcoming in late 2014 from InterVarsity Press). In “The Pietist Impulse and the Integration of Faith and Reason in the Contemporary Evangelical University,” David called on fellow evangelicals to remember the Pietist as well as the Reformed impulses at the origins of their movement and thereby recover a more holistic understanding of scholarship, teaching, and the function of the university. You can get a taste of his line of argument via some of my tweets from the talk:
