At one of our postgrads’ discussions, a friend doing a PhD in literature was sharing how difficult it is to attribute special authority to the Bible in the English faculty, where a first principal is that all texts are treated equally. Must we just make a special exception for this book, and take the ridicule on the (other) cheek?
I’m from a science background, and in my faculty non-scientific texts are supposed to have no authority at all. Can either of us ever hope to be considered rational by our colleagues, when we trust in God’s written word? Surely that challenge is there even if we never get into apologetics discussions at work, never mind claiming scientific or literary insights from the Bible in our research!
