Integrating a Biblical Worldview into Bible College Teacher Education Programs
Watson, James E.
Christian Higher Education, v6 n5 p357-369 Oct 2007
New to the mission of Bible colleges is the introduction of "marketplace" majors, specifically teacher education. In this article, the author postulates several reasons for this addition and then discusses the questions to be answered in developing a Christian worldview and the need to articulate a biblical worldview through our teaching. Following this discussion, a departmental and personal example of beginning to provide an integrated biblical worldview is given. The paper concludes with the implications of teacher education programs undertaking the integration of a biblical worldview.
