Description

The Australian Student Christian Movement has provided a forum for exploring spirituality and social issues in the nation's universities for over a century. Described as a 'university within a university' the ASCM has had a national and international influence and has inspired leading academics, politicians, public servants, business leaders and clergy to put their faith into action. Renate Howe draws on a rich range of material from libraries, private collections and oral histories. She tells the inspiring story of the progressive ASCM, a movement whose influence has extended well beyond its formal membership.
