While searching for some material related to Tertullian’s questions “What indeed has Athens to do with Jerusalem? What concord is there between the Academy and the Church?”, I stumbled upon this insightful short article by C. Drew Smith. It looks at some of the issues of teaching in a Christian liberal arts college, particularly around the development of critical thinking skills, engagement by/with stakeholders in that environment, and selection of material for students to read from different theological and philosophical perspectives. Resonated with me, but the other way around as I have to select material from ‘faith’ traditions to use in a secular educational context.
