Practically Human: College Professors Speak from the Heart of Humanities Education by Gary Schmidt

If you are a student wondering what to study in college, this book is for you. It invites you to seek out the practical benefits of studying literature, language, the arts, history, religion, and philosophy. These disciplines-known collectively as the humanities-will teach you to analyze complex social dynamics, articulate good arguments, and apply the hard-won wisdom of the past to new and challenging situations. ENDORSEMENTS "The intellectual insights offered in this book are what we would expect from members of Calvin College's world-class faculty. What we also get, however, is some marvelous storytelling about personal scholarly pilgrimages. A must-read for people who need to be convinced of the value of Christian liberal arts education. And a fine refresher course for those of us who are already convinced!" Richard Mouw President and Professor of Christian Philosophy Fuller Theological Seminary "The humanities are dying, or so we're told. These authors enliven them with stories, examples, and images that nourish the mind and soul. They challenge us to expand our humanity-to think more deeply, to listen more carefully, to see more astutely, and to empathize more profoundly." Perry L. Glanzer Associate Professor of Educational Foundations Baylor University
