The book's greatest strength is its methodological diversity, ranging from chronological histories to autobiographical essays. The authors make clear the inextricable links between slavery, students, faculty and administrators, African colonization, and the institutionalization of Christian faiths in the US.--Jodi Skipper "The Southern Register "
