Summary
"The Desk as Altar is an intriguing narrative of the journey of the Church of God's flagship university, Anderson University, from its sectarian beginnings to its current incarnation as a robust Christian university with an ecumenical flavor. Extremely well-written and researched by author, Merle Strege, it offers wisdom about Christian higher education that transcends the story of Anderson. It shows how wise leadership anchored in a rich Christian tradition can avoid sectarianism on the one hand and secularization on the other. Anyone interested in Christian higher education will find it hard to put down." -- Review by Robert Benne, Jordan-Trexler Professor of Religion Emeritus, Roanoke College
