Summary
Religious colleges and universities in America are growing at a breakneck pace. Journalist Riley explores these schools, interviewing administrators, professors, and students. Call them the Missionary Generation--schools like Wheaton, Thomas Aquinas, and Brigham Young are churning out a new generation of smart, worldly, and ethical young professionals whose influence in business, medicine, law, journalism, academia, and government is only beginning to be felt.--From publisher's description
