Approaches to Teaching Anti-Christians to Christians

Margaret Watkins Tate

Teachers of anti-Christian philosophers at Christian colleges and universities face a delicate situation created by two apparently antipodal problems. Some students find it difficult to learn from authors who challenge their faith; others find in such texts encouragement for rebellion against Christianity. Moreover, many students are puzzled by the relationship between faith and philosophical argument. Margaret Watkins Tate argues that we can address these challenges constructively by focusing on lessons that philosophers such as Nietzsche and Hume have to offer Christians and by modeling a rich integration of faith and learning. Ms. Tate is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Baylor University.
