Main Article Content
This article addresses the issue of defining the phrase “integration of faith and learning” (IFL). An examination of the phrase and the various perspectives of IFL has revealed that IFL can be defined as a process that a person undergoes personally before serving as a catalyst to cause this to happen in others. An understanding of seeing IFL from this viewpoint can help Christian educators who are attempting to grasp the concept of IFL.
