Christian Humanist Profiles 34: Richard Mouw

Philosophers in study chpWhat exactly is a Christian scholar? Need one’s work in the academy be explicitly devoted to some distinctively “Christian” end if one is to be considered a Christian scholar? In this episode of Christian Humanist Profiles, Todd Pedlar interviews Dr. Richard J. Mouw, Professor and President Emeritus of Fuller Theological Seminary on his recent book, Called to the Life of the Mind: Some Advice for Evangelical Scholars, and the two discuss issues surrounding evangelical Christians in the academy. In his book, and in this podcast, Mouw reminds those who have been called to academic work – both students and faculty alike – that their vocation is one accompanied by grace and freedom in Christ to pursue their work with vigor, and to freely explore the subject matter that they have been given the opportunity to study – and that to faithfully serve as a Christian in academia is not a question so much of what one studies as how one studies.
