According to the authors, higher education today suffers from a lack of a clearly articulated purpose, a deficiency particularly challenging to religiously-affiliated institutions. This volume attempts to address the problems currently facing denomination-affiliated institutions of higher education, beginning with an introduction to government aid and the regulation of religious colleges and universities in the US. The greater part of the volume consists of 24 chapters, each of which begins with a historical essay followed by annotated bibliographical entries covering primary and secondary sources dating back to 1986 on various denomination-connected institutions. There are roughly 600 bibliographic entries, an epilogue discussing critical issues, and subject and author indexes.
