A Phenomenology Of The Integration Of Faith And Learning, Elizabeth C. Sites, Fernando L. Garzon, Frederick Milacci, Barbara Boothe Jul 2009

A Phenomenology Of The Integration Of Faith And Learning, Elizabeth C. Sites, Fernando L. Garzon, Frederick Milacci, Barbara Boothe

Fred Milacci

This phenomenological investigation examined how eight student-nominated faculty who teach at an evangelical Christian liberal arts university describe their understanding and practice of the Integration of Faith and Learning (IFL). Collected data via informal, conversational, taped interviews led to the emergence of two primary themes: the Inseparability of Faith from Practice and the Outworking of Faith in Practice. The findings of the study highlight the need to create a more conducive context in which students can learn IFL and call for a re-examination of the already murky discourse surrounding definitional aspects of IFL. The study proposes to move the discourse ...

The Religious Other As Neighbor, Lawrence E. Frizzell D.Phil. Apr 2009

The Religious Other As Neighbor, Lawrence E. Frizzell D.Phil.

Reverend Lawrence E. Frizzell, S.T.L., S.S.L., D.Phil.

Many stories are told about antagonism between Christians and Jews, especially in countries with a large Jewish minority. The history of persecution should be told along with the lessons learned for our time. A brief review of examples whose participants were neighbors, either in reality or in principle, may be instructive. This paper will move through the centuries in a rapid survey, recalling friendly contacts or benign exchanges between Christians and Jews.

Scripture As Word Of God: Evangelical Assumption Or Evangelical Question?, John D. Morrison Mar 2009

Scripture As Word Of God: Evangelical Assumption Or Evangelical Question?, John D. Morrison

John D. Morrison

Examines the views of D. Bloesch, G. Fackre, and C. Pinnock. Indicates their disjunctive positions introduce ontological and epistemological dualism into the doctrine of revelation. Takes Packer's view of the Bible as the Word of God written, affirming that the human languages used to reflect God's person and work are competent to do so. Finds Wolterstorff's answer to Barth and John Baillie insightful, but we must move past his views to the full-orbed acceptance of the Word of God as written to avoid negating propositional revelation.


Resurrection Research From 1975 To The Present: What Are Critical Scholars Saying?, Gary R. Habermas Feb 2009

Resurrection Research From 1975 To The Present: What Are Critical Scholars Saying?, Gary R. Habermas

Gary R. Habermas

An overview of resurrection research in Europe and North America during the last 30 years indicates some expected as well as some surprising trends. This study highlights six of these major research areas. The works of two representative scholars, J.D. Crossan and N.T. Wright, provide interpretive angles on these subjects. The article concludes with some comments on what is taken to be the single most crucial development at present, that after Jesus' death his followers had experiences that they thought were appearances of the risen Jesus. These early Christian experiences need to be explained viably.


Journey To The Headwaters: Bartolomé De Las Casas In A Comparative Context, Rev. David Orique, O.P. Dec 2008

Journey To The Headwaters: Bartolomé De Las Casas In A Comparative Context, Rev. David Orique, O.P.

Rev. David T. Orique, O.P.

This essay compares the theological orientation of Bartolomé de Las Casas (1484-1566) with those of two other notable colonial Latin American ecclesial figures: Toribio de Benavente Motolinía (1494/95-1565), and Juan Vasco de Quiroga (1477/78-1565).An examination of the experiential and theoretical epistemological sources of their theological orientations reveals the influence of different temporal, social, and geographic experiences as well as of their common and distinctive intellectual formations. Their understandings of and activities in the New World reflect these epistemological influences. The data demonstrate that Las Casas's theological orientation was primarily prophetic in his quest for justice for ...


Mary And The Jews: The Gospels And The Early Church, Lawrence E. Frizzell D.Phil. Dec 2008

Mary And The Jews: The Gospels And The Early Church, Lawrence E. Frizzell D.Phil.

Reverend Lawrence E. Frizzell, S.T.L., S.S.L., D.Phil.

The intention of this essay is twofold; to extend the time period of my earlier essays on Mary and the biblical heritage and to sketch the developments in the early Church, in spite of their burdens of motifs relating to the Jewish people, so that we can understand our history with an insight into the Church's roots and prepare for a better future in Christian- Jewish relations.
