  • Carver goes to Washington

    Booker T Washington invited Carver to Tuskegee:

    I cannot offer you money, position or fame. The first two you have. The last, from the place you now occupy, you will no doubt achieve. These things I now ask you to give up.

  • Creation care

    Jesus Christ is the Creator, Sustainer, and Redeemer of all things—the implications are profound. Colossians 1:15-23 and Romans 8:18-27 emphasize “all things” even though we quickly tend to focus on Christ's redemption of us and ignore the rest of His creation. My selfish, self-centered perspective can easily blind me to the truth that redemption isn’t just about me, but is about all of His world. Creation care is a logical extension of a desire to honor the One who made everything, actively holds it together and died to restore it to its original good purposes. The way I teach about God's world will reflect what I really believe about Christ.

    Lowell Bliss introduces Environmental Missions as a historic practice and present opportunity to labor with Christ in caring for the environment and making disciples among all peoples.

  • George Washington Carver

    The accomplishments of Dr. George Washington Carver in the field of botany-chemistry are legendary, having developed 300 products from the peanut, and 118 from the sweet potato. The products Carver invented include printers ink, shaving cream, plastics, adhesives and much more.

    But Carver only owned three patents on his many creations. Why? Because he didn't feel it was right to take money for something God gave him.

  • How great Thou art

    By Mrs. Petricia Ganguly, St. Paul’s School, Gorakhpur U.P., India

    God has made all things for a purpose. Now let’s see few examples from biology—the living science.

    1. Our body is made up of cells. Different cells have different functions in our body, as well as in plant bodies.
    2. Red blood cells carry oxygen to all parts of the body. They do not have a nucleus, mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum so they can adopt the optimum shape for absorption of oxygen.
  • Isaac Newton - Gravity

    "Gravity explains the motions of the planets, but it cannot explain who set the planets in motion... This most beautiful system of the sun, planets and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being."

    Issac Newton

  • Noah Webster - Education that rejects religion is defective

    "Any system of education…which limits instruction to the arts and sciences, and rejects the aids of religion in forming the character of citizens, is essentially defective."

    Noah Webster

  • Ratio Christi

    “…a global movement that equips university students and faculty to give historical, philosophical, and scientific reasons for following Jesus Christ”



  • Reclaiming the Christian intellectual tradition

    Joe Neff, editor of The Principal Connection introduced me to this series recently. It "is particularly designed for Christian students and others associated with college and university campuses.... The contributors...explore how the Bible has been interpreted in the history of the church, as well as how theology has been formulated. They will ask: How does the Christian faith influence our understanding of culture, literature, philosophy, government, beauty, art, or work? How does the Christian intellectual tradition help us understand truth? How does the Christian intellectual tradition shape our approach to education?"

  • Science 5

    I’m excited that my 5th grade science students can connect course content to Biblical teaching, resulting in them making healthy choices. In an essay at the end of a recent health unit, students wrote things like, “I learned that…if you're not spiritually healthy, it will affect your physical health.”

  • Science 8

    By David Marshall at the Christian Academy in Japan

    I'm excited about the way kids were able to see something as simple as Play Station affects their lives and hearts, that technology has positive and negative impacts. During the presentations, one student said, "It's important to be content, rather than wanting the latest technology." Another student said as she demonstrated her blood sugar tester, "Without this device, I would't be alive… The Bible says we are not to murder, which means we are to protect life. This device protects lives."
  • Staying on the road less traveled: Fulfilling a vocation in science

    By Keith B. Miller and Ruth Douglas Miller in Perspectives on Science and Christian Faith, Volume 60, Number 2, pg. 115-117.

    It was over ten years ago that we wrote of our thoughts on "taking the road less traveled" of a vocational calling in the sciences, and particularly within the secular academy.1 We have been asked to reflect again on our experience in staying on that road. The perspective that we emphasized then, and continue to see as foundational, is that of understanding our work as scientists/engineers as an inseparable part of Christian stewardship. We see stewardship as more than just a responsibility to use our resources wisely—we see it as a worldview that encompasses all of life.
  • Thomas Torrance - created universe as theatre

    "…the more the created universe unfolds its marvelous symmetries and harmonies to our scientific inquiries, the more it is bound to fulfill its role as a theater which reflects the glory of the Creator and resounds to his praise"
