Contents, January/February 2000:
- The Christian Scholar in the 21st Century
- Dr. Alister McGrath of Oxford explains the history of evangelicalism in the university and in academic scholarship. He outlines why evangelicalism abandoned the academy in the past and how it can regain a foothold in the university once again.
- Why Care About Teaching?
- Dr. Vernon Burton won the national teaching award for Outstanding Research and Doctoral Universities Professor in 1999. But unlike the stereotype of good teachers, Vernon is also an accomplished and nationally recognized scholar in his field of history. What follows is an interview we conducted with Dr. Burton to discover how he maintains the balance between dedicated teaching and research, and how he integrates his Christian faith into his professional life.
- Academic Integration and the Christian Scholar
- Dr. J.P. Moreland has written here what could be considered the manifesto for academic integration--Christians seeking to integrate their faith within their fields of study. As a renown philosopher, Moreland has done perhaps more research on the nature of integrating the Christian faith within academic than anyone else. This is a must-read for for any Christian in the university.
- Can We Change the Course of the New Millennium?
- The national field director of Christian Leadership Ministries, Mike Sorgius, writes about the importance and necessity of a conference like God and the Academy, coming June of 2000.
