In this book, Douglas Sloan explores the impact that the Protestant theological renaissance had on American colleges and universities. In particular, Sloan focuses on the church's most significant claim to have a continuing voice in higher education: its particular ability to demonstrate a connection between faith and the dominant modern conceptions of knowledge. Sloan looks at the ways the mainline Protestant churches did, and did not, deal effectively with this faith-knowledge situation and the subsequent cessation of the church's large-scale engagement with American higher education.

Douglas Sloan is Professor Emeritus of History and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, in New York City. His published works include The Scottish Enlightenment and the American College Ideal and Faith and Knowledge: Mainline Protestantism and American Higher Education.
