To Think Christianly: A History of L’Abri, Regent College, and the Christian Study Center Movement tells the story of a 50-year-old movement that has influenced generations of scholars and students in the United States and across the globe. In the late 1960s, when a new generation of evangelicals came of age in the midst of unprecedented cultural upheaval and educational opportunity, visionary leaders helped create a new type of institution: the Christian study center. With roots in Francis Schaeffer’s L’Abri community and Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia, Christian study centers are now ensconced at dozens of major research universities across the United States. There are nearly thirty affiliated study centers, each reflecting their unique milieus and endeavoring to inspire Christians to study, engage, and pray for culture more faithfully—in the words of Regent College’s founder James M. Houston, “to think Christianly.”
Historian Charlie Cotherman has spent the better part of a decade researching the genesis of the Christian study centers and their distinctive contributions. In this virtual book launch, he will shed light on this compelling history and the movement’s bright future, as well as discuss the process of researching and writing his book (available April 28) with InterVarsity Press’s academic editorial director, Jon Boyd.
This virtual event is hosted by Upper House, a Christian study center on the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We will be using Zoom for this event. Upon registering, you will receive an email confirmation with a link to the event webinar platform.
