Some Reflections on the Task of a Christian Scholar

by Gregory Ganssle

The task of the Christian in the academy is complex. Paul Gould’s essay “An Essay on Academic Disciplines, Faithfulness, and the Christian Scholar” includes some helpful conceptual tools.

The first helps us visualize the multiple implications of the fact that God is the prime reality. These implications open up the resources of the Gospel for thinking about the task of the scholar.

The second helps us give a more nuanced analysis of the contours of one’s academic discipline.

In this essay, Gregory Ganssle develop these tools to help make them more comprehensive, and, hopefully, even more applicable.
