Worth a Look 1.31.11
When I became a Christian at age 20, I began to understand that my mind really matters. (Beforehand, I didn’t engage in my studies and did just enough in school to get by.) It was then that I realized the importance of cultivating a well-informed, logical mind as well as building a coherent and defensible Christian worldview. Now as an adjunct professor at Biola University, I hope to encourage my students to come to that same realization. I offer my list of 100 academic commandments to help show students (and their parents) how to take full advantage of their school years and beyond.
