40th Anniversary Celebration and Meeting

The 40th anniversary celebration of Christian Scholar’s Review took place on April 15 and 16, 2012 in Rosemont, Illinois at the InterContinental Hotel.  The event marked both forty years of publishing for CSR and the publication of the edited volume Taking Every Thought Captive: Forty Years of the Christian Scholar’s Review.  The volume was published by Abilene Christian University Press, and was edited by Don W. King, the current editor of Christian Scholar’s Review.


At the celebration there was a panel discussion of the influence of Christian Scholar’s Review led by John Wilson, editor of Books & Culture.  George Marsden and Mark Noll also served on the panel.  A podcast concerning the event can be found on the Books & Culture website here (look for April 25, 2011).
