In this unique book, Duncan Ferguson and Beau Weston argue that the calling to teach is distinctively Reformed and a primary mission of the Presbyterian Church. This collection of essays first lays the biblical, theological, and historical foundations for this calling, then explores how it is lived out today in educational institutions--church-related as well as secular. Ferguson and Weston conclude that today's church must have the nurture of the teacher as a central part of its mission.

Duncan S. Ferguson worked in higher education for years, serving as a college chaplain, faculty member, and administrator. He has also served as Senior Officer of Higher Education for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and for the Association of Presbyterian Colleges and Universities.


William J. Weston is John M. and Louise Van Winkle Professor of Sociology at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky. He is an elder in the Presbyterian Church and has published several books, including Presbyterian Pluralism: Competition in a Protestant House .
