Abstract

As Christian educators we must take seriously the gospel command to "go, and teach them all that I have commanded you." But how are we to proclaim the ancient faith in a relativistic, image-driven, postmodern age that long ago abandoned modernism’s holy crusade to either prove or disprove the orthodox faith through reason? Using the example of the biblical languages, the author argues that a truly Christian worldview and pedagogy must begin not with reason, but with incarnation; this is the wellspring of the faith. We must teach our students both to believe, and to simply be. How to do this? We must first of all live our faith, not simply confess that it is true. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
