|Shaping a Christian Worldview
"The faculty of Union University have offered encouragement to the community of Christian colleges and universities, through the essays presented in Shaping a Christian Worldview, to stay focused on our core mission: the advancement of Christ-centered learning. These essays manifest a deep commitment to Christian worldview thinking, to theological depth with appropriate ecumenical breadth, and to constructive engagement with secular disciplinary scholarship. This volume will help renew the calling of evangelical Christian teacher-scholars to thoughtful Christian distinctiveness in the academic disciplines, and is a useful introduction to this key characteristic of Christian higher education."
Stanton L. Jones
"Principled worldview formation is a characteristically Christian species of intellectual work, and no less now than at any other time in history it is work needful to be done. Dockery, Thornbury, and their colleagues at Union University have produced an engaging and pedagogically useful taxonomy for Christian worldview reflection across the disciplines and it should be welcomed by educators and their students alike."
David Lyle Jeffrey
"Exemplary! This fine book by obviously talented and thoughtful members of the faculty and administration of Union University is a model in multiple ways:
Union is an innovative Christian university that is setting the right example for the rest of us to follow."
David K. Naugle, Th.D., Ph.D.
“This lively volume displays the intellectual energy made possible when faith and reason work with, not against one another. The essays are written in a style that makes them accessible to laypersons and scholars alike. A welcome addition to an ongoing cultural debate.”
