The richness of the Christian intellectual tradition, rooted in Scripture and expounded and developed by the great thinkers throughout history, is living proof of the power of faith to illuminate minds.
Those early Christians were more than thinkers; they were also doers—men and women shaping their cultures with innovative ideas and reform in law and politics... philosophy and religion... science... music... literature... and art.
Today, more than ever, the world is in need of great thinkers. We need a new generation of serious-minded intellects who will engage the culture with the truths of Christian faith. These men and women, like those before them, must be prepared to contemplate and clarify the most perplexing issues of our time.
Union University is committed to readying a generation of change agents the world so desperately needs. They will critically and creatively build upon the tradition of thought and inquiry so carefully shaped and nurtured by the great Christian scholars before us.
