Publisher's Description

The Integration of Faith and Learning: A Worldview Approach'provides students with the philosophical context and practical tools necessary for making the connections between Christian knowledge and the knowledge they will acquire during their undergraduate and graduate years in higher education. This book focuses on helping students understand how worldviews influence the interpretation of data and even what is judged to be knowledge itself. The worldviews of philosophical naturalism, postmodernism, and Christianity are compared and analyzed. Throughout the book, emphasis is placed on helping students develop the practical skills needed to evaluate knowledge claims and to integrate all knowledge into a unified whole through the touchstone of Christian truth. Harris' book on the integration of faith and learning provides an insightful and systematic way for the university student to filter ideas through the grid of a robust Christian worldview and life. In a time when conceptual illiteracy and moral confusion abound, Harris provides a straightforward account of how to integrate one's academic learning with faith. By applying the principles laid down in this book, a new Christian intelligentsia will emerge that is unabashedly Christian in their faith and learning. --Paul Gould, Christian Leadership Ministries' Academic Initiative This is a much needed exhortation to all Christians who want to make an impact on today's society--or need the tools to keep the faith in spite of today's society. This is a well thought out journey into many fields and philosophies--its breadth is as encompassing as its depth. . . . This is a must read for students, teachers, and all lovers of wisdom --Brett Peterson, President, Coastland University Worldview survey books abound, but what sets this one apart and makes it essential is its treatment of how knowledge functions and is propagated ""in the real world."" It is insufficient to merely categorize thinkers or their views. Students need to reckon with how certain claims are advanced and accepted regardless of their merits. Harris' book teaches a savvy form of skepticism that still exudes a love of truth and values the life of the mind. Highly recommended for home schoolers, youth workers, campus ministers, college students, professors, and anyone concerned with training Christian students in how to engage the world of ideas. --Patrick Rist, Christian Leadership Ministries' Academic Initiative Robert A. Harris has taught courses in writing, literature, and critical thinking at the college and university level for more than 25 years. He holds the Ph.D. from the University of California at Riverside.
