Kuyper Centre for Emerging Scholars

The Kuyper Centre for Emerging Scholars is run by Mike Wagenman and is well worth checking out if you are thinking of studying in Canada.

Also on the site are a number of helpful resources.

Check out these excellent essay titles:

  • Essay 1: What is the current state of the discipline? What is the creational order for this area of life? Where is there creational insight in ‘secular scholarship’? And, what benefits does the discipline offer (to scholarship, the Church, and life holistically understood)? 
  • Essay 2: Where or how has this area of life/scholarship been twisted by cultural idolatry? What do you or others in the field believe to be unhelpful aspects within the discipline?
  • Essay 3: Taking a long view of the development of the discipline, please sketch the history of the discipline, paying special attention to sub-currents within it over the last century or two. Answer the question: How did we get to today - the positives and the negatives?
  • Essay 4: What healing paths are open for this area of life/scholarship? What insights/contributions does Christian faith offer to the discipline to correct any perceived unhelpful developments and move the discipline forward in the positive areas?
