Faith Integration: The Missing Links by John W. Taylor V
“While the concept of faith integration, in and of itself, is not the missing link in Christian education, what is heralded as ‘faith integration’ is often merely a veneer, a sugar-coated secular pill. What is missing is authentic faith integration. This article examines two links frequently missing in faith integration, links that can carry integration from pretense to reality and whose absence can place the entire faith process in critical jeopardy. These end links connect faith integration to its Source and to its object.”

Integration of Faith and Learning: An Incidental or Intentional Approach? by Barbara J. Fisher
The Integration of Faith and Learning (IFL) concept makes Christian education unique. “Yet, despite all the research and information available about IFL the author has discovered that an ‘Intentional’ or an ‘Incidental’ approach to integrating faith and learning in the Christian classroom is still a topic of discussion and debate among teachers. Therefore, in this article the author proposes that both ‘Incidental’ and ‘Intentional’ IFL approaches are complementary and indispensable if a balanced and realistic engagement with Christian education is to be experienced by the students. The application of this thesis in the elementary school setting is then discussed and practical suggestions for its implementation outlined and explored.”

The Ant Model: God’s Framework for Sustainable Institutional and National Development by Daniel A. Babalola and Tomilola Y. Babalola
“This paper examined the challenge recorded in the book of Proverbs 6: 6-11 and analyzed the model that God has deposited in the ant for sustainable development. The scope of the paper covers analysis of the model’s framework and its application to leadership, communication, and conservation as drivers of institutional and national development.”
