Christianity Today Magazine is featuring an essay from President Andrea P. Cook entitled Re-"Placing" the Christian College. Dr. Cook explains why faith-based schools must root their mission in their own community. The story is part of Christianity Today's online blog This is Our City.

About This is Our City: A growing generation of Christians believes God has called them to love their cities and to work for their shalom. These Christians are bringing their gifts and energies to all sectors of public life—including government, technology, the arts, commerce, and education—to enact systemic renewal from the cultural "upstream," and to bless their neighbors in the process. They embody a new approach to evangelical public engagement—being countercultural for the common good.
This Is Our City, a multimedia project of Christianity Today, seeks to spotlight the ways these Christians are responding to their cities' particular challenges with excellence, biblical faith, and an irenic spirit.
