Christians should be people of faith who can think. All thinking begins with a foundation of faith assumptions. Faith in anything is developed and tested by different areas of the world of learning. Faith and learning are not separate activities but are interwoven with each other for the full functioning of the human mind. In other words, faith is essential for learning, and learning is essential for faith. The following points summarize the major themes highlighted in this book. o Learn to think in terms of worldviews (assumptions about reality and life) as an aid to seeing the relevance of the Christian faith in our world today. Be aware of worldviews other than your own, and know how to test them for truth. o Learn to be open to the whole of knowledge, including biblical teaching, the sciences, and the arts, to learn from it and to enjoy it. o Trust the firm foundation in the Bible for life and knowledge; upon it Christians can build their living and learning. o Learn to integrate faith and learning. The integration of faith and learning shows how one can solve issues between secular and Christian thought. There is nothing helpful today about ignoring the academic tension points between secular and Christian thought. Nor is it usually helpful in Christ-versus-culture issues to merely “proof text” our way to victory using appropriate Bible verses.
