How does a boy build an ethical framework from which to make decisions in everyday life?
What is a life worth living and how might faith be connected with that goal?
The essential questions which all religions seek to address are the basis of studies in our Bible Department. With an emphasis on the teachings of the Christian faith, boys discuss the scriptures, traditions and backgrounds as they work to understand their spiritual journey.As students examine theological, ethical, and historical questions, they also learn to think analytically, listen, and respond respectfully to a variety of perspectives and opinions. They share their responses creatively through projects, presentations, and discussions. We intend to respect students of all faiths and no faith even as there is a strong primary focus on Christianity.
Biblical Archaeology students discover the relationship between history and the Bible, as they practice the methodology of archaeology or try their hand at creating a modern day artifact, connecting it to the art, architecture, culture, and history of Middle Eastern civilizations.
Boys learn how to make decisions in the context of faith when faced with the complexity and ambiguity of daily life.
