Guidelines for Realizing Biblical Faithfulness in Science and Math

Science classes at classical and Christian schools should embody key distinctives that differentiate them from typical classes at other schools. The same holds true for math classes. One of the distinctives is biblical faithfulness. In this seminar the presenter will argue that simply starting class with prayer or a Bible reading, or acknowledging God as the Creator in posters on the walls of the classroom are not adequate as attempts to realize biblical faithfulness in science and math. Also inadequate are the simplistic answers often given by Christian schools to contemporary hot-button science issues. Instead,classical and Christian schools need a vision for realizing biblical faithfulness that is rooted in the classical intellectual tradition, and conversant in biblical attitudes that is rooted in the classical intellectual tradition, and conversant in biblical attitudes toward nature, work, study, and God’s intimate governance of His Creation. Only then can we model loving God with “all our mind” for our students.
