This imaginative study rethinks the nature of theology and its role in universities. * The author sketches out a fascinating project using examples from US and UK institutions, whereby theology becomes a transformative force within universities. * Imagines what a Christian university, in which all disciplines have been theologized, would look like. * Feeds into discussions about the religious identity of deminationally-linked colleges and universities. * Forms part of a wider attempt to imagine a vital public role for theology that enables it to serve both the Church and the wider community.
