The Postmodern Opportunity: Christians in the Academy

Harold Heie

In this essay, Harold Heie argues that the postmodern emphasis on perspectivalism can provide a window of opportunity for Christian voices to be heard in the academy. He proposes a postmodern conversation process that includes a diversity of voices. But such cross-perspectival conversation will be fruitful only if members of the academy aspire to certain ideals for conversation. Rather than arguing for such ideals in the abstract, Heie provides concrete suggestions for how Christian colleges can model communities of conversation and then invite non-Christian scholars to join the conversation. Mr. Heie is Director of the Center for Christian Studies at Gordon College.
