Announcing the Society of Christian Scholars

Society of Christian Scholars banner

We like to advertise other initiatives that share a similar vision with Faith-in-Scholarship, and today I want to tell you about the Society of Christian Scholars.  Actually this organisation hasn't been officially launched yet: it's due to come into existence tomorrow, on 1 March. 

This initiative's purpose is prominently stated on its About page. "The Society of Christian Scholars equips missional Christian academics to have a redemptive influence for Christ among their students, colleagues, institutions, and academic disciplines."

Dangerous Faith in Infinite Progress

Story

Picture it. Your name is Vladimir and you are working in a Soviet chemical factory in the 1930's. Suddenly the workers stop working and they start to sing a hymn. Not to God but to ‘electricity’. They sing as follows:

Electricity can do anything. It can dispel darkness

and gloom. One push of a button and clickety-click

out comes a new man.
