Faith-in-Scholarship

Facebook Twitter

FiSch is a network of fellowship and support for Christian thinkers both in and out of the university. We love the rich diversity of God's world and find that knowing Jesus as Creator, Redeemer and Lord transforms the way we understand it. We share a passion to see ideas bearing good fruit as we investigate problems, create opportunities and find smart solutions to the challenges of our time.

WYSOCS has a splendid record of Christian engagement with all kinds of subjects, and I look forward to seeing fruit from the Faith-in-Scholarship project.

What is a University Club?

Bruce C. Wearne encourages students to reflect upon institutional relationships in academic life and the effect of higher education reform.

I first developed the above diagram as a part of my response to what was happening at Chisholm Institute of Technology (CIT) in Melbourne back in the 1980s. CIT was part of the “binary system” of higher education in Australia, in which the Institutes of Technology and Colleges of Advanced Education were considered a “cheaper but equal” alternative to universities.

Eternal progress: how to find fresh ideas

There is a point of view from which it looks implausible that research in any field could continue indefinitely, century after century, endlessly discovering new things about reality.  But if Christ's kingdom will never end, there's a case to be made that cultural development, finally freed from sin, will continue forever under His reign. Might not the created order, once more fully disclosed in the New Creation, be worthy of ongoing scholarly research into eternity?
