Overview

Wolterstorff puts forward a proposal for a distinctly Christian approach to education, one that expands the teaching-learning process within the context of the covenant faith community. He challenges Christian scholars to think seriously about how to integrate faith, reason, science, and philosophy together in how we approach educating ourselves and the next generation.

Expanding on his 1976 study of the bearing of Christian faith on the practice of scholarship, Wolterstorff has added a substantial new section on the role of faith in the decisions scholars make about their choice of subject matter.
