Christian Higher Education as Sacred Liminal Space
Theoretically and practically applied in his ministry, Jesus embodied sacred liminal space. From this “betwixt and between” position, he transformed individuals and the world. This incarnational conceptualization is the underpinning for faith-based higher education. At our best, the Christian college or university, with the missional synergy of faith and reason, is sacred liminal space that results in a particularly effective educational philosophy. On these campuses, students are transformed into “whole and holy persons,” and equipped to engage in “God’s work of restoring and transforming the world.”
