A Higher Education collects the work of renowned scholars on the importance and mission of Christian higher education. Placing Baylor University at the center of these discussions, this compendium celebrates the inauguration of Judge Kenneth W.

With an introduction by Baylor University Executive Vice President and Provost Elizabeth Davis, A Higher Education shows how the model set forth at Baylor University can influence institutions of higher learning here and abroad.
