 "When we've had a chance to systematically examine our faith-to walk through the valley of doubt and reach the other side, to climb in confidence once again up the slopes of faith-we're better equipped to answer a cynical and incredulous culture. In this way, far from impeding mission, higher education empowers it." Gregory Crofford
