Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.

The showcase gives students the chance to share their original work with an audience of peers, and features original songs created and performed by worship arts students. Performances are unplugged, acoustic and take place in a low-fi, coffee house-style venue.

Many college students will vote for the first time in this year’s presidential election, and with the excitement of voting comes great responsibility.

Dr. Wayne Grudem, research professor of theology and biblical studies at Phoenix Seminary and author of “Politics According to the Bible,” will be visiting Grand Canyon University on Monday, October 17. Students, staff and faculty are invited to come listen to Dr. Grudem’s presentation, which will take place in Ethington Theatre from 5:00 – 6:30 pm.

Every so often I challenge my students with an oddball rhetorical question or comment, hoping to get them to rethink their understanding about the relationship between faith and science.

Which comes first?

Which serves which?

Do science and the Bible contradict each other?

Is there a science to faith?

Grand Canyon University is at a crossroads. For more than 35 years, Dr. Mike Baird has lived the spectrum of life at GCU. And now he has announced his retirement.

Who will represent the College of Theology on his committees related to faculty leadership and scholarship? Who will say “So far, so good”?
