Intellectuals

Common perception is that Christians are not highly intellectual. Nothing could be further from the truth. The scientific method was extracted from the Bible and led to an explosion of scientific discovery parallel to the reformation. Following are some testimonies from people from an intellectual background.

Eric Metaxas is a Yale graduate from Danbury, CT. Here is his testimony:



Jennifer Fulwiler was raised in an intellectual family in which her father read her books by Carl Sagan on his lap as a young girl. She has a stack of Ivy League degrees and is married to an Ivy League husband with his own stack of Ivy League degrees, including a law degree and an MBA. She is probably the last person one might expect would become a person of faith. This is her story.



Holly Ordway was raised “culturally Christian”, but she never went to church, never had a Bible and didn’t know anything about Christianity. She read a lot as a child, including the Chronicles of Narnia and the Lord of the Rings. When she went to college, she became “indoctrinated” in “staunch atheism”. And, when she found out the Chronicles of Narnia were about Christ, she was angry at CS Lewis for “ruining a good story”. She was an atheist until she was 31, but her story takes a different turn along the way.
