From "Christians should evaluate philosophy by biblical criteria. This will shed greater light on the developments in the history of philosophy and better prepare us for the intellectual challenges of our time. The fall of Adam brought intellectual as well as moral corruption on the human race, and the effects of the fall can be seen in the work of philosophers, most of whom try to understand the world autonomously through reasoning apart from God's revelation. Some philosophers have appealed to God's revelation, but their work has often been compromised with the wisdom of the world. Revelation should inform reason, and not the other way round. In the past, even Christian theology was corrupted by the movement toward intellectual autonomy, creating the tradition of liberalism, which has unhappily dominated academic theology down to the present day. But there is hope a new generation of Christian thinkers take God's Word seriously. Frame's unique new contribution augments that process."

Western Seminary Review: Thankful for Western!

I am a Master of Arts in Counseling student in my last semester at Western. My training at Western Seminary has been absolutely foundational to my growth in a variety of ways: Personally, professionally, academically, spiritually, relationally.

I have been so blessed by the classroom instruction and interaction, the personal relationships with staff and faculty, my internships, the space to learn and grapple with the scriptures.

The faculty are knowledgeable and humble, truly centered on the gospel and on representing the word accurately and with reverence, and they are also each actively ministering in the local church and a variety of real-world contexts - so that teaching is not divorced from real interpersonal relationships and current cultural challenges.

As a counseling student I am also particularly thankful for the careful and thoughtful integration of biblical wisdom and truth with counseling theory and ethics - I was looking for this in a program and my expectations were definitely exceeded at Western.

I feel personally grounded and professionally equipped as I prepare to enter the counseling field. I would recommend Western to anyone seeking biblically faithful, gospel-centered graduate education!
