The current pragmatic focus in education has led to an overemphasis on career preparation. Yet historically, the purpose of education was much broader than that. Alexander Campbell founded Bethany College partly to demonstrate his distinctive method for higher education, which was rooted in his ideals of biblical training for forming the whole person. Institutions of Christian higher education should heed Campbell’s example of formative education because God will be glorified by, and the church and the world need, people of mature character.
