Dustin Burlet | Peace River Bible Institute
T. Desmond Alexander once stated, with respect to teaching the Old Testament, that it is “difficult to think of any other academic subject that covers such a wide range of fields. How does one do justice to all the various areas that contribute in their distinct way to our understanding and appreciation of the Bible?”1 This assertation resonates deeply with me, as few of my “classroom conundrums” have required more circumspection and pastoral sensitivity than dealing with those matters that concern science, creation, and the Bible (history, literature, and theology), particularly with respect to the first eleven chapters of Genesis.2[Read more…]

Remote Learning and the Challenge of Interpassivity
KENT EILERS | HUNTINGTON UNIVERSITY
It is common for a disinterested student to slouch their way through class, projecting to all, “I’m not into this.” They suck those around them into the black hole of their malaise, draining the classroom of that particular energy we crave from face-to-face teaching. But to me, that student has always been a discomforting magnet. I crave their engagement; I’m an addict for it.

TREMPER LONGMAN III | WESTMONT COLLEGE
I became a Christian my senior year in high school during the so-called Jesus Revolution of the late 1960s and early 1970s. It was an exciting time, particularly on college campuses where there was something of a revival going on.
I arrived at college the next year, half Jesus freak and half football player, but not really interested in academics. Two factors changed my attitude toward academics, one positive and one negative.[Read more…]
