Christianity and Literature: Philosophical Foundations and Critical Practice

May 3, 2011

From John Piper on David Jeffery and Gregory Maillet’s Christianity and Literature:

The series preface (by Francis Beckwith and J. P. Moreland) contains this heartening exhortation to Christian scholars to stop hiding their belief in God.

They quote atheist philosopher Quentin Smith who says that one reason the university academic community has become increasingly secular is because “theists tend to compartmentalize their theistic beliefs from their scholarly work; they rarely assume and never argue for theism in their scholarly work.”

Then they add: “This has got to stop. We offer this book to you with the prayer that it will help you rise to the occasion and recapture lost territory in your field of study for the cause of Christ” (25).

Hear. Hear.
