Grants Support Christian Higher Education Initiatives

"As a twentieth-century Christian aspiring to become an English professor, I probably couldn’t have been luckier than to enter graduate school in the 1990s.

It stops far short of affirming the right of individual Americans to refuse services based on their religious beliefs.

(And on the whole, it seems we progressive Christians do still love our hymns!) Since I received so much feedback (roughly 750 nominations that I counted), I figured I should tally them up and share the most popular examples, with a bit of brief commentary on each."
