The Importance of Biblical Integration | About BJU Press
BJU Press defines biblical integration as Christian worldview shaping. Behind the commitment to this definition are two assumptions. First, education of every kind is an endeavor shaped by worldviews. Education is more than data and evidence. A well- educated person not only knows facts, but he also understands his worldview and how it colors and focuses his view of facts. Second, the Christian belief system is a worldview, and it should be taught to students as the only way to see the world the way it was meant to be seen. The Bible deals with more than evangelism, church planting, and the development of godly character. The Bible is the story of God's mighty, saving deeds in a world of sin and death. This story gives the believer the ability to view all things from a Christian perspective—algebra and science no less than philosophy and theology. And if a parent is serious about Christian education, he must be serious about instilling in his students a Christian perspective on all of life.
The Christian worldview that BJU Press materials present to students can be expressed in the biblical story of Creation, Fall, and Redemption. By taking these three events/themes as the lenses through which to look at the academics, we are able to show that faith and learning are bound together and that the Christian faith must govern the educational experience.
