[197] Xian Scholars

Do our Christian colleges and universities have Christian scholars, or just scholars who happen to be Christians?

You can find plenty of the latter at Christian colleges, and more “under cover,” at mainline Christian-unfriendly universities. All you need to do is deliver a competent academic job and have a faith confined to a personal level to be one of these faculty. Keep your mouth shut and your word processor silent when it comes to the things of faith and you can enjoy a cozy tenured existence in either setting.

When your faith informs your work, provides a context for your work, is a lens through which you see all of life, giving you a Christian worldview, then you are a Christian scholar. Then you are out there, in the Christian intellectual arena.

So how many of these can you identify?
