Don Carson recently posted on the Gospel Coalition blog calling for seminaries to have an integrated curriculum taught by a passionate faculty. Dan Strange responds.
Over at the Gospel Coalition, a number of distinguished seminary professors and presidents are asked, 'What is one thing you would change about seminary?' Don Carson's 'utopian' vision concerns an integrated curriculum, together with a faculty who are passionate about an integrated curriculum.
Well, jumping up and down like that little kid in the classroom bursting to tell his teacher his news, here at Oak Hill we are attempting to develop precisely the integration Carson is talking about. Our newly revalidated CertHE, FdA and BA (Hons) curriculum attempts to break down the specialisms and compartmentalization between theological disciplines, while preserving their distinctive contributions to the required rigorous training and formation of men and women for gospel ministry. It's about a curriculum that structurally evidences a key feature of knowledge: 'unity and diversity' and 'one and manyness'.

Kirsty Birkett responds to reports of the recruiting drive by Isis to young people in the Western world.
It has been reported in the news this week that, frighteningly, young women and girls are leaving their Western homes and going to join jihadis in Isis. I have looked with horror at the smiling, attractive and naive faces of 15 and 16 year-olds who have run away from home to marry jihadis, encouraged by a slick marketing campaign from Isis.
Five people in France have been arrested for recruiting young women; a 19 year-old in Denver had been charged with supporting terror groups, caught at the airport as she was travelling to the Middle East.
