Instead of merely adding Christ to existing practices, Christ should serve as the motivating and animating force for all of Christian Student Affairs. With Christ at the center, the Christian story distinctly transforms the nature of the work student affairs professionals do.
Using research from a national mixed-methods study, Christ-Enlivened Student Affairs first constructs an educational philosophy by tracing how Christianity animates the who, why, what, and hows of student affairs. In this way, Christ-Enlivened Student Affairs provides a catalogue of some of the best thinking and practices in the field, offering professionals a comprehensive guide tot he work of transformative student affairs. Finally, the authors also set forth a vision for an even more robust theological perspective for Christian student affairs.
