Since Alexander Campbellas 1840 charter established aa seminary of learning for the instruction of youth, a Bethany College has claimed a place of national importance in education and in the history of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). D. Duane Cummins, a noted Disciples historian and Bethanyas president for fourteen years, takes a fascinating and comprehensive look at the institution in Bethany College: A Liberal Arts Odyssey. Cummins intertwines Bethanyas story with American history and economic patterns, from the founding of a religion-related institution in antebellum times, through the rebalancing of liberal arts and professional arts during the 1970s and 1980s, to Bethanyas future in the new millennium.
