FRAMEWORKS is a series dedicated to interdisciplinary studies on the integration of faith and learning. Given Jesus' command to ""love God with heart, soul, mind, and strength,"" the time is ripe for confessional scholarship and education across the disciplines. We implore God's Spirit to change us through the great works of history and literature alongside developments in science, psychology, and economics--and all of this--through intense engagement with the Scriptures. We want to celebrate God's work across the disciplines. We seek the likes of psychologists in conversation with philosophers, ethicists with historians, biblical scholars with rhetoricians, scientists with economists, environmentalists with neurologists. As these conversations continue across the disciplines, the ""framework"" from which to draw our individual and collective testimonies will only enlarge. We invite you to think, behave, preach, sing, pray, research and indeed to live this multi-faceted journey with us. If indeed our stories are never complete, we invite future contributors and readers to join us in pursuit of deeper personal and collective transformation.""This inaugural volume of the Frameworks series marks it as a go-to set of books for those working in Christian universities. Its contributors here connect the liberal arts tradition to Christian formation in provocative and thoughtful ways, and Lewis and Mittelstadt's editorial oversight is suggestive for how interdisciplinarity will continue to facilitate the integration of Christian faith and learning in the present higher education ferment.""--Amos Yong, Professor of Theology & Mission, Fuller Theological SeminaryPaul W.
