Damon Mayrl, Sociology of Religion No Longer Invisible opens a comprehensive window into a decades worth of debates and experiments about whether and how to integrate religion into college life. The reader will find an excellent synthesis of current thinking among higher education scholars over the role of religion in higher education, and they may glean insights from its description of the novel programs that some universities are undertaking to engage with religion more fully.
Peter Hampson, Theology The Jorgensen's overall treatment is sophisticated and well informed; their assessments for the future of university religion are realistic, plural and optimistic. Far from being a narrow, denominationally focused account of a limited set of Christian traditions in a limited variety of campus engagements, theirs is a serious, wide-ranging contribution to religion and the university debates.
Jonathan P. Hill, Journal of Contemporary Religion, I highly recommend this book. It is remarkably inclusive, elegantly and persuasively written, and eminently practical.
Wesley Null, Journal of Church & State it makes for a solid contribution to the growing body of literature on the increasing significance of religion in higher education.
