Christian Faith at Harvard

I just read a fascinating article about Christian faith at Harvard, and I commend it to you.

Here’s a teaser:

There are countless tales of students whose faith slips away during their time at college. The ones who ignore questions from mom about going to church on Sundays, or take a philosophy class that destabilizes their belief in God. The ones who no longer see the appeal of theism, or leave their copy of the Bible unopened on the bookshelf. You’ve heard of them. But this is different. This is a story about the students with burgeoning faith—the moments that caused them to question, and the experiences that led them to believe.

The photo to the right is of Emerson Hall at Harvard University. The inscription on the stone reads: WHAT IS MAN THAT THOU ART MINDFUL OF HIM, a quotation from Psalm 8. I’ve written about this inscription in a short blog article called “Harvard Ironies.”
