Prepare your students to engage tough questions.
Your students are constantly bombarded with conflicting messages and competing narratives in the ever-growing marketplace of ideas. How can you prepare them to navigate all this noise and the questions that inevitably result from exposure to a diverse world?
- How do we faithfully engage tough questions?
- How does humility help us to learn new things about God?
- What factors shape how people respond to questions that can be addressed by both science and faith?

Modules Included in this Unit
1.1 Meet: Astronomer Deborah Haarsma
Dr. Haarsma shares about her research on black holes and the importance of gracious dialogue in talking to others about faith and science.
1.2 Grow: Humility
In this brief devotional, students reflect on the kind of humility God calls Christians to display when interacting with others and how Christlike humility prepares us to pursue truth when we face hard questions.
1.3 Experience: The Intersection of Science and Faith
Students interview others to discover how a person’s expertise, experience, convictions, and values shape thinking when it comes to questions about science and faith.
1.4 Engage: God’s Two Books
Students learn about the difference between special revelation and general revelation and about the “two books” metaphor, the idea that God reveals himself through both Scripture and nature.
1.5 Engage: Unraveling the Conflict Thesis
Students critique the conflict thesis and hear Christian scientists articulate how science and Christian faith can complement each other.
1.6 Integrate: Pursuing Truth with Boldness and Humility
Students reflect on the alleged “slippery slope” of pursuing scientific knowledge and how this pursuit could potentially affect their faith. Students are encouraged to think about orthodoxy: How can we avoid extremes? How can we avoid becoming so rigid in our beliefs that we refuse to think about questions that threaten our views? And for that matter, how do we keep from becoming so undiscerning that we accept all claims about the truth as equally valid?

INTEGRATE is a creative, inspiring, and deeply faithful teaching program, bringing together the Christ-following mind with the scientific mind to more deeply understand how to think Christianly about God and creation. I strongly commend it to schools and home educators alike.

INTEGRATE is definitely bridging the science and faith gap in our curriculum. It is exactly what we need.
