Augustine talks about “plundering the Egyptians,” or to put it in practical terms: all truth is God’s truth. Therefore, truth may come from many places and sources. Our humanities program will seek to discern truths and falsities from each and every source, with Scripture held as the plumb line for truth.
Copiousness and integration work hand-in-hand. When subjects are disjointed, connections do not come immediately. To understand God’s world is to understand His world as it works. History does not stand alone: literature, culture, geography, biblical timelines, philosophy, art, and music have all been intertwined together in the past, to study them as separate “units” is to forget truth. The Bible, although standing alone as God’s word, grows our understanding when reading in context. What has shaped our world is not out-of-context events but intertwined human encounters within the context of God’s amazing world. What is the purpose of teaching humanities? For us, as humans, it is to learn as much as possible about God’s world in which we live.
