Studying Scripture Within the Postmodern Secular University Context

From: Volume 6NS, Issue 2: Fall 2002 Pages 67-77


Christian students at secular universities must learn to study the Bible and apply it to their lives in order to develop a strong faith of their own in the midst of the challenges of this postmodern age. The results of interviews with students involved in InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at six universities reveal that Christian students are eager to study the Bible in small groups where there is transparency and vulnerability to share struggles and to dig deeply into the Scriptures for answers. Despite the atmosphere of relativism on their campuses, most of these students share the belief that the Bible is truth; however, their reason for this is not intellectual apologetics but personal experiences with a living God and his Word as well as trusting relationships such as family, youth group and a Christian community on campus.
