Excerpt from the book:
Writing this book made me better appreciate Silliman as an institution of learning. It made me see how the combination of faith and intellect could be powerful backbones of an education that serves people and nation.
Silliman does not always succeed or is good at everything it does. But it keeps struggling to overcome. It is this energy to keep struggling and to be moving on forward that makes Silliman among the strong rocks in the pillar of Philippine education today.
I hope and pray that Sillimanians and education policy makers in the country see Silliman this way.
