Esqueda, Octavio Javier – Christian Higher Education, 2014
The integration of faith and learning is regarded to be a primary distinctive of Christian higher education, yet this terminology conveys a false dichotomy.

This article responds to sociologist Christian Smith's claim that many teenagers today have lost traditional religious faith and instead espouse a new and erroneous faith in God the "Cosmic Therapist."

Williams, James – School Science Review, 2016

Schindler, Neal; Hope, Keely J. – Journal of College Counseling, 2016
Anxiety is a common symptom among college counseling clients. Perhaps because of the unique developmental tasks they face, many later adolescents (ages 18-24 years) use religious coping to manage anxiety.

Although the integration of faith and learning presupposes a learner, little theoretical work has addressed the role of students in faith-learning integration.
