Opening of the Evangelical Mind
A Conference on Evangelical Intellectuals
December 7-8, 2007
An increasingly sophisticated, self-assured, and productive class of intellectuals is emerging in American public life — an “evangelical intelligentsia.” These evangelicals, engaged in intellectual pursuits in a way that is motivated by and informed by their faith, are exercising a growing influence on American academics, culture, law, and public policy. This conference, under the auspices of Boston University’s Institute on Culture, Religion, and World Affairs (CURA), aims to illuminate the development, contributions, and cultural consequences of this emerging generation of American evangelical intellectuals.
