This blog is a space where a team of us – the FiSch Fellows and some friends – will be exploring how Christian faith can affect academic work and life.  And you, dear reader, are invited to join in!

We’ll probably have more questions than answers, because Christian faith is always an adventure, and our academic work is part of that.  We’re also looking forward to hearing different points of view, because scholarship is a community project which we do, in good faith, without necessarily agreeing on everything.  So we want to engage with you, our readers, and respect your insights too.  By seeking to engage each other with compassionate sensitivity, careful analysis and clear language, we believe a lot of light can be shed on some of the world’s most complex and difficult problems.  We want to see new knowledge, ideas and skills developed and harnessed for good in a broken world.

What we as contributors have in common is a commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of the whole created order.  We seek to be guided by God’s Word in the Bible, while trying to understand God’s Word revealed in the rest of creation, in service to that Word made flesh in Jesus Christ, who redeems us by the power of the Holy Spirit, for this life and the life of the world to come.  It’s bound to be an exciting journey!
