All human ideas and endeavors are driven and informed by a worldview. That worldview, however, may not be recognized, verbalized, and even be consistent. Missional University recognizes that God’s story – the biblical worldview – takes precedent over any cultural, social, or personal worldview. The redemptive mission of God is the story, the metanarrative that answers all narratives.
The challenge from Biblical Studies to all students is to immerse themselves in God’s story by reading, researching, and grappling with the biblical text. The outcome will not be simply more information about the Bible, but the essential tools for developing a worldview that will shape and inform their lives and mission. The bottom line goal is a graduate who can give a biblical answer to the “why” and “how” for every endeavor in life.
