Newest issue of Didaskalia focuses on Christ-centred higher education
2017-01-25
 
“What does it mean to be a Christian scholar and teacher?” “What challenges do Christian scholars uniquely face as they ‘seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness/justice’ in the world of higher education?” “What unique opportunities do Christian scholars have to bear witness to Christ and to influence the direction of our culture?”
 
These are some of the questions posed by Dr. Patrick Franklin in his introduction to the newest issue of Didaskalia, Providence Theological Seminary’s peer-reviewed academic journal.
 
Focusing on the theme of Christ-centred higher education, the 2016-17 publication draws on the contributions of numerous scholars, including Dr. S. Joshua Swamidass of Washington University in Saint Louis, Dr. David Guretzki of Briercrest College and Seminary, and Nadia Delicata of the University of Malta.
 
Prominently featured is Dr. Jens Zimmermann, Canada Research Chair of Interpretation, Religion, and Culture at Trinity Western University and visiting research fellow at Trinity Hall, Cambridge University.
 
Zimmermann’s article, “Christian Humanism: Christ-Centred Education by Another Name,” seeks to demonstrate, according to Franklin, “the enduring significance of the Christian humanist tradition for the integrity and health of higher education.” He also points out that Zimmermann provides “a helpful, overarching framework for the entire volume.”

The 2016-17 issue of Didaskalia can be obtained for $25 ($22.50 in the United States) and ordered through the Providence website.
