Title
Christian Views of Self and God: Context Matters
Abstract

Twenty-four Christian college students and 24 state university students were interviewed using Gilligan'€™s moral choice paradigm (Brown et al., 1988). Justice narratives predominated among the Christian college students; among the state university students, care and justice narratives were equally prominent. Eight state university students articulated belief in the Christian God. These state university Christians described themselves less often in justice terms than the Christian college students and more often in terms of both justice and care than the remaining state university students. Further, the state university Christians described God in terms of justice more often than did the Christian college students. The implications of these differences for faith development are explored.
