EMBRACING THE MISSION BY DR. BRUCE MCLARTY
Originally written in conjunction with McLarty's doctoral dissertation in 2010, Embracing the Mission was developed as a curriculum for new faculty to introduce them to Harding's history, mission and Christian worldview. McLarty's dissertation research explored why so many colleges lose their founding faith over time, and he developed Embracing the Mission as a way to withstand this trend.
The book will be available in the Harding University Bookstore for $9.95, $5 of which will be donated to On a Wing and a Prayer - a recently established fund for students in need.
Embracing the Mission is a tool used to help the University to maintain the focus and unity that comes from a shared vision. Following the thread of Harding's mission from its founding to present day, Embracing the Mission empowers faculty to teach "Christianly" in the 21st century.
