I want to thank you once again for your support of CSR’s Christ Animating Learning Blog and our website in general. This past month we hit another milestone. Our website had a record 56,270 visits in November, 2022 (beating the previous record of 48,422). Thanks for your interest and enthusiasm for how Christ can animate learning.
On our blog this December, I want to draw your attention to a series of beautiful advent reflections appearing each Friday of Advent, written by Katie Kresser, Professor of Art History, Seattle Pacific University. I promise they will enrich your Advent celebration.

What's New in CSR?
In our recent fiftieth anniversary edition of the journal, we held a review symposium addressing George Marsden’s revised edition of The Soul of the American University Revisited. You will find review responses from Susan VanZanten, Susan M. Felch, Philip Ryken and Julia D. Hejduk as well as a response from George Marsden. We think the issue will serve as a great discussion piece for faculty.
What's New in Faith-Learning?
If you are not familiar with the International Network of Christians in Higher Education (INCHE), we encourage you to examine their website and resources. They do a tremendous job of developing Christian higher education around the world. For example, they are holding an upcoming conference in Europe (Budapest) from April 6-8th, 2022 on Building Community in Fractured Societies: Challenges for Christians in Higher Education. The registration deadline is January 15, 2022.
Reflection from the Editor-in-Chief
Speaking of international higher education, one of the most encouraging developments in Christ animated learning involves the growth of Christian higher education around the world in places where it did not previously exist. Here are some of encouraging highlights:
  • Before 1990, Africa had only 18 Christian colleges or universities. Today, it has 103. In fact, more Christian institutions have been started in Africa in the past 30 years than the rest of the world combined.
  • One third of all universities in South Korea are now Christian universities
  • In 1980 Australia did not have one Christian college or university (it did have Bible colleges). In fact, it was the only continent on which the first university was not Christian. Today it now has eight Christian institutions (2 universities, 1 university college and 4 college).
In the future, we will be introducing a feature on the CSR website that allows you to see all the Christian universities around the world on a map and link to their web sites. For now, if you wish to learn more you may want to examine this volume: Joel Carpenter et al., eds., Christian Higher Education: A Global Reconnaissance. 
P.S. The Christ Animating Learning Blog will take a break from Dec. 22 to Jan. 3.
