Mr. Sam Alberry | A Theology of the Body, Spring 2018
In this video Rev. Sam Allberry, Visiting Professor at Cedarville University, a global speaker for Ravi Zacharias International Ministries, editor for The Gospel Coalition, author of several apologetic’s books, and a pastor based in Maidenhead, UK, gives a lecture on “A Theology of the Body”. Sam writes, "Western culture is increasingly confused about our bodies: on one hand they’re seen as accidental and incidental; on the other they can quickly become the focus of our identity — we seem to be more invested in our image than ever before. But as we look at the biblical narrative we see good news. Creation, fall, and redemption all shed crucial light on what it means to be and have a body." This is a crucial topic effecting a number of our respective disciplines.

Dr. Thomas Mach - Biblical Integration Presentation, Fall 2016
Higher education experts predict that as many as half of the 4000 institutions of higher learning in America may fail in the next 15 years. Those institutions that seek to honor Christ need to provide a quality education that is distinctively biblical if they want to survive in this challenging environment. This paper presents the argument that Cedarville University's integration of faith and learning is distinctive primarily because of its view on the inerrancy of Scripture, its approach to Scripture, its willingness to put all things into subjection to the authority of Scripture, and its desire to serve the church in its God-given role. By focusing on distinctives like these, Cedarville will position itself well for long-term success by appropriately submitting to the authority of God's Word.
