Bibliography for the Integration of Faith and Learning
and the Development of a Christian World View


Nyack College has had a policy of requiring a faith/learning integration paper of all faculty seeking tenure. In order to aid those candidates seeking to fulfill this requirement, a bibliography was assembled of relevant categories and items in 1997.  The basic categories and entries utilized were taken from Brian J. Walsh and J. Richard Middleton, “A Bibliography We Can’t Live Without,” in The Transforming Vision: Shaping a Christian World View (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 1984, pages 203-214).Use was also made of an updated form of their bibliography in James Sire, Discipleship of the Mind (Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 1990).This bibliography has been subsequently expanded by the addition of further entries and categories and is offered here with the hope that it will be useful for anyone attempting to work out the relationship between the teachings of the Christian faith and the truths of general learning.
