More Than the “Integration” of Faith and Learning

Show Summary Details


An approach to Christian scholarship called “the integration of faith and learning” has been popular for several decades within evangelical Protestant academic circles. Originally developed by Arthur Holmes and Nicholas Wolterstorff, it has recently been championed in the larger academy by people like George Marsden. With roots in Reformed theology, it stresses the importance of articulating a Christian “worldview.” This approach has many strengths, but it is not the only way of defining Christian scholarship and other models need to be developed.
