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: Theology in Everyday Life

by Derek Hiebert
(Seattle, WA, USA)

I earned my MA in Biblical Theological Studies 8 years ago. The theological training I received at Western has been so useful in my approach to making disciples in everyday life.

Our learning and discussions in the classroom always came with the trajectory of tackling real life. We were always encouraged to engage and embrace the mess and brokenness of life because of sin - which contains uncertain and hard-to-explain situations - and not just provide pat answers, all while keeping the gospel central.

The training and overall culture of Western, I believe, is producing solid and faithful leaders for the sake of Christ's mission!
