LFP Book Award: Past Winners and Finalists


The 2013 Winner


   
Jesus Christ and the Life of the Mind

By Mark A. Noll
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., 2011
ISBN-13:  9780802866370 

In Jesus Christ and the Life of the Mind, Mark A. Noll draws on the resources of Christian thought not only to defend but to promote the pursuit of truth and beauty in the liberal arts. Building on and extending his arguments in The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind, Noll demonstrates that thoughtful understandings of Christology and the Atonement not only justify passionate and precise academic work but offer specific guidance in the way scholars and teachers approach their subjects. Jesus Christ and the Life of the Mind—a book for scholarly and general audiences—is required reading for people of faith who are interested in the purposes of education and the vocation of the teacher/scholar.

2011 Winner:

 

Souls in Transition: The Religious Lives of Emerging Adults

An exemplary work of scholarship combining empirical data with personal stories, Souls in Transition:  The Religious and Spiritual Lives of Emerging Adults cuts through the media clutter on college-age adults to offer a vital portrait of their religious, moral, and spiritual assumptions and practices.  The implications in this work for the way colleges and universities--religiously-affiliated or not--recruit, retain, instruct, and prepare students for lives that matter are challenging and profound.  Souls in Transition should be required reading for anyone working in higher education.
