About the Author

Nicholas Wolterstorff is Noah Porter Professor Emeritus of Philosophical Theology at Yale University. He has written several books, including Lament for a Son and Justice: Rights and Wrongs. He lives in Grand Rapids, MI.


"More secular liberals should consider Yale philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff's suggestion in Religion in the University that religious voices be welcomed at institutions of higher learning in much the same way the once-excluded perspectives of feminists and African Americans are now welcomed."--E.J. Dionne Jr., Washington Post
"A work of genuine enlightenment."--Christian Smith, author of Atheist Overreach: What Atheism Can't Deliver
"With great lucidity and power, distinguished philosopher Nicholas Wolterstorff counters many of the arguments for excluding scholars from the university who are religious believers."--Richard J. Bernstein, New School for Social Research
"Can and should modern universities be hospitable to religious orientations and voices? This superb book presents the most plausible and readable case for including religion in university life today."--Miroslav Volf, author of Flourishing: Why We Need Religion in a Globalized Worlddiv>
"With characteristic probing clarity, Nicholas Wolterstorff makes a powerful case for the importance of religious voices and orientations in our pluralist universities. Religion in the University represents a highly accessible contribution to the culture of the academy."--Howard Wettstein, author of The Significance of Religious Experience
"This book asks whether distinctively religious voices merit a place in the intellectual and educational practices of our universities. Wolterstorff's answer, which is a qualified yes, comes with reasons and distinctions that will now have to be considered by anyone discussing the question. The argument's implications actually reach far beyond religion to many other respects in which someone's perspective can be distinctive."--Jeffrey Stout, author of Democracy and Tradition
