How to Think Biblically about Any Academic Discipline

Description

Scripture provides us with the most immediate access to the mind of God available to us. As such, the personal reading and meditation of the Word of the one who is the Creator and Sustainer of everything falls into a different category than the words and ideas found in other abstracting disciplines such as theology, biblical exegesis, and philosophy. In this talk we think about our exposure to God's Word which does not come to us through theological or philosophical categories, but nevertheless has a deep formative influence on how we approach our discipline - listening to God's Word feeds us on every level.
