Abstract

Editor j. note: This is the first of a series of short essays which explore the unique ethos embraced and advanced by dif ferent Christian denominations in their schools (see Editorial in this issue). This article is an adaptation of DK Andreason h Fall Semester 2005 Convocation speech delivered September I, 2005 on the campus of Andrews University. Andreasen argues the necessity of Christian colleges and universities ofleering their students a unique, distinctive Christian perspective throughout their learning experience rather than some version of mere Christianity. He presents "waiting expectantly for God" as the distinctive mark of Seventh-day Adventist Christian education. He explores several aspects of this distinctive feature and how it is applied in practice. © 2005, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
