Abstract

How do Christian teachers steward both the academy and their faith by integrating their faith tradition into their teaching? This chapter draws upon a survey of 2309 faculty at 48 institutions in the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities to set forth a typology that helps us identify and understand a range of eight different ways teachers apply faith in the classroom. The authors examine potential weaknesses and strengths of various approaches and conclude we need a holistic approach that weaves together the disparate strands that may become weak and tattered when left to themselves. In particular, the authors encourage doctoral students and new faculty to pursue styles that they find the most authentic while maintaining a holistic approach.
