Features Over 100 Articles Including:

  • “Christian Worldview, the Great Commandment, and the Christian Life”
  • “A Biblical Basis for Science”

  • “The Bible and Creation Care”
  • “Elderly Care”
  • “Capitalism and a Christian Worldview”
  • “North American Evangelicals and the Global South”
  • We certainly want to love God with our hearts and our souls. We must, however, as Christ-followers who desire to be Great Commandment Christians living in line with the teaching of Jesus (Mt 22:37-39), love God with our minds as well … To hold a truly Christian worldview means that we seek to think differently about the way we live and love, the way we worship and serve, the way we work to earn our livelihood, and the way we learn and teach.

    David S. Dockery, PhD, President of Trinity International University
  • Christians who marvel at the wisdom, power, and creativity demonstrated in God’s handiwork, as the biblical writers and early scientists did, have a strong motive to pursue the sciences even if their colleagues espouse a narrower viewpoint.

    John A. Bloom, PhD, Chair of the Department of Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering at Biola University
  • Jesus, on the other hand, understands that evil is a real problem that cannot be ignored or denied. Death is not just the dance of our DNA. Death is the enemy (1 Cor 15:26). Jesus teaches that evil affects all of us through death (Lk 13:1- 5). And it is Jesus’s confrontation of actual evil that provides a real solution offering hope to mankind.

    Mary Jo Sharp, author, director of Confident Christianity, and professor at Houston Baptist University
  • In the incarnation, in Jesus of Nazareth, the eternal Son of God entered creation. The Creator took on flesh and resided in the world he had made (John 1:14). In so doing, he revealed God to the world and became its Savior (John 1:14-18,29). Christ’s work of redemption is not merely good news for humans. The salvific plan of God is cosmic in scope.

    Glenn R. Kreider, PhD, Professor of Theological Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary
  • A Christian’s attitude toward the elderly is a good indicator of just how much he or she believes the gospel. We care for our infirm parents, not because they parented us well but because they are image-bearers deserving dignity. We respect rather than dismiss our elders because we recognize the good fruit of God’s sanctifying work in giving them wisdom beyond our years. We resist the culture’s worship of youth and sex appeal because we as Christ-followers find our value not in our appearance, but in our status as sons and daughters of the King.

    Daniel Darling, Vice President of Communications at the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention
  • How then should we, who believe that God owns the cattle on a thousand hills, that life does not consist in the abundance of possessions, that we are not our own, that we are not strict owners, but mere stewards of talents, wealth, and grace, who will give to God an account of our stewardship—how should we think about capitalism?

    Walter J. Schultz, PhD, Professor of Philosophy and Scholar-in-Residence at the University of Northwestern
  • The clear message of Scripture is that all believers, wherever they are found, make up a universal entity. Believers present in one local expression of Christian faith are linked to all others in their local settings because all are joined to Christ.

    Mark A. Noll, PhD, Research Professor at Regent College, former Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History at the University of Notre Dame
