In someways I like what you are thinking. It is ridiculous that most
folks in this country claim to be Christian, yet academia makes such a
dualistic separation between science and Christianity that it has
essentially become secular. In the process of trying to be neutral it
has committed itself to a secular faith. George Marsden is really
right on this. The
problem is evangelicals buy into the dualism and like to keep the two
worlds different too - so it may be a hard sell. Unfortunately I think
Bill is right, it may not go. But rather than form our own group, my
gut feeling is we should say that the secular group, just like the
secular University is just as much ours as yours.
