Liberal Arts and the Priorities of Nazarene Higher Education

J. Matthew Price

The Church of the Nazarene early in its history endeared itself to liberal arts education as a denominational priority. This study provides a beginning to understanding this priority through H. Orton Wiley’s influence in nurturing liberal arts education in Nazarene colleges during the first half of the 20th century. Some of the ideals promoted by Wiley should not be lost at the beginning of the 21st century.
