Living the Questions of Learning and Faith

Show Summary Details


The task of Christian scholarship involves the exploration of the scholar’s own soul as well as the philosophical analysis of the linkages between faith and learning. The ideas of Ernest Boyer and Nancey Murphy illustrate this complex terrain where faith and scholarship overlap and blend together in the scholar’s life. This approach to Christian scholarship requires that ethics and aesthetics be taken into account alongside logic and that “living the questions” of learning and faith take center stage over the merely theoretical discussion of issues.

Keywords: aesthetics; Ernest Boyer; ethics; “faith and learning,” “living the questions, ”; Nancey Murphy
