Professors Who Walk Humbly with Their God: Exemplars in the Integration of Faith and Learning at Wheaton College
Matthias, Laurie R.
Journal of Education & Christian Belief, v12 n2 p145-157 2008
Desiring to fulfill heir institution's mission to integrate faith and learning, faculty members at Christian colleges and universities often face a special challenge. While they attempt to jettison the anti-intellectual label often associated with evangelicals through their scholarship, they are also pursuing excellence in their roles as spiritual models for their students. Research conducted among seven professors who exemplify the integration of faith and learning at Wheaton College revealed a common characteristic: humility. In spite of their considerable professional accomplishments, all participants demonstrate a humble admission that they do not have all of the answers--doctrinally, philosophically, or academically. (Contains 3 notes.)
