Welcome to the inaugural issue of Christian Perspectives in Education. In recognition of Dr. Carwile's commitment to scholarly inquiry on educational issues from a Christian viewpoint, the Editorial Team has dedicated the first issue to Dr. Rebecca F. Carwile. Dr. Carwile was the Associate Dean in the School of Education at Liberty University when she passed away in 2006 following a year-long battle with cancer. She had been at Liberty since 1986. Her colleagues and students will fondly remember "Dr. C." The first article in the inaugural issue is an unpublished paper that Dr. Carwile presented at the Oxford Round Table.
