Reichard, Joshua D. – Journal of Education & Christian Belief, 2013
This article contributes to ongoing discussions related to the nature, scope, and methods of faith-learning integration. The "initiation" approach developed by Tim McDonough (2011) is adapted to faith-learning integration in an attempt to bridge polarizing discussions regarding indoctrination versus rational autonomy and critical…

Cooling, Trevor – Journal of Education & Christian Belief, 2010
This article advocates the thesis that Christian teachers can and should draw on the resources of their faith in their work of leading teaching and learning. The secular approach where faith is treated as a private matter and the "market share" approach where the dominance of Christian faith is sought, are both rejected. A third way which aspires…

Badley, Ken – Journal of Education & Christian Belief, 2009
The language of "faith-learning integration" remains popular among evangelical educators in both K-12 and higher education. Some observers suggest for theological and educational reasons that Christian educators replace integration language with other language. Even its advocates do not agree on what would count as integration. This article…

Glanzer, Perry L. – Journal of Education & Christian Belief, 2008
Discussion about the integration of faith and learning has become a common theme among Christian colleges and universities. Although it has fostered a robust academic dialogue, I contend the language of "integration of faith and learning" needs to be discarded. My conclusion, however, stems not from recent critiques of the integration model.…

Matthias, Laurie R. – Journal of Education & Christian Belief, 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…

Music offers to language teachers benefits in terms of language exposure, cultural information, and multisensory appeal. This article describes how the use of music videos offers potential for exploring spiritual and moral concerns, especially as the intersections between words, sounds, and images are explored. Exploring how (in this case)…

Smith, Julien C. H.; Scales, T. Laine – Journal of Education & Christian Belief, 2013
This article explores theological dimensions of the academic vocation, taking its cue from the research undertaken by the Carnegie Initiative on the Doctorate, which envisions the scholar as a steward of an academic discipline. We contend, however, that the Christian scholar's sense of stewardship extends beyond one's academic…

Langer, Richard – Journal of Education & Christian Belief, 2012
The integration of the Christian faith with human learning was addressed by the earliest Christian apologists and continues to be an important question for the church up to the present day. Such lengthy conversations are complicated by variations in nomenclature, attitudes, and theological assumptions. This paper attempts to clarify portions of…

Rine, C. Rebecca – Journal of Education & Christian Belief, 2007
The confessions of Augustine of Hippo can be read as a lesson in reading, one in which Augustine teaches by example as well as precept. Throughout this work, the relationship between faith and reading is clearly on Augustine's mind, as is his desire to teach others what he has learned. As we consider our own approaches to the confluence of faith,…

Pike, Mark A. – Journal of Education & Christian Belief, 2007
This article addresses how Christians can read wisely and well as citizens of both God's kingdom and an increasingly secular society. I suggest that focussing on reading as a transaction between reader and text rather than on the morality of texts or the maturity of readers can provide a biblical approach for Christian educators seeking to invest…

Iselin, Darren; Meteyard, John D. – Journal of Education & Christian Belief, 2010
Although widespread consensus exists that the integration of Christian worldview, faith and learning lies at the heart of effective Christian education, such an aspiration has not always resulted in the embodiment of worldview principles within Christian educational contexts. In response to this dissonance, an alternative approach to integration…

Edgell, Margaret S. – Journal of Education & Christian Belief, 2007
A localized ethnography of African Christian students revealed consistently robust Christian faith across all respondents, the core elements of which were rooted in an explicit Afrocentric worldview. These findings support multicultural critiques of classic student spiritual development theory, and point toward further research from a…

Watkins, Clare – Journal of Education & Christian Belief, 2008
This paper aims to offer a "liveable" theology for the Christian teacher; that is, it seeks to articulate a theology of teaching in contemporary contexts which can serve the spiritual and faith development of Christian teachers in their vocation. A first section gives some brief account of "teaching" in the Christian theological tradition,…
