Engaging God’s World: A Christian Vision of Faith, Learning and Love

Overview

The Bible admonishes Christians to love God with the mind as well as with the heart. Engaging Gods World clearly links this scriptural mandate with the pursuit of academic life, extolling the crucial role of Christian higher education in the intellectual and spiritual formation of believers. Chiefly intended to serve as a primer for students beginning college careers but valuable to thoughtful Christians at every stage of life, this volume spells out the central themes of the Christian faith from a Reformed perspective. More important, however, the book shows how Christian higher education fits inside a view of the world and of human life that is formed by these ideas. Learning, Cornelius Plantinga writes, is a spiritual calling; properly done, it attaches us to God. Approaching the topic of education from a variety of angles, Plantinga shows that Christ-centered learning teaches people to correctly see the world as Gods creation, to see providence in history, to handle secular knowledge critically, to develop good judgment and, ultimately, to use faith-filled learning in the service of Gods kingdom.
