University of the Nations (Kona Campus)

Offered in: English

This core course of the U of N aims to present, examine, and celebrate God's truth and work in every area of life, in alignment with Philippians 4:8, an exhortation to meditate on ""whatever is true, honorable, just, sacred, lovely and of good report."" It encompasses the humanities and science and technology, looking at the achievements and failures of individuals, societies, and nations, past and present. The course allots eight weeks of study to humanities, and four weeks to science, though the goal is an integrated approach. Topics include: the history of civilization from ancient times to the present, the meaning of worldview, language and culture, history of science, the practice of science, stewardship principles, appreciating literature and art, world politics and justice issues. This course meets the U of N Core Curriculum requirement for Applied Christian Thinking.
