MEDIA & MINISTRY

Dr. Lew Andrews

For nearly three centuries — from the founding of Harvard to the First World War — nearly every American college president was a Christian minister and almost all gave a popular student seminar on how to express one’s faith in the wider world of work, family, politics, and social service. Dr. Andrews has written the first-ever book, Living Spiritually in the Material World, which summarizes the presidents’ world-shaking teachings and shows how their wisdom is reemerging in modern psychology
