Unrelated Parallel Lines

“Today we have a weakness in our educational process in failing to understand the 41KLqMHFg+Lnatural associations between the disciplines. We tend to understand all our disciplines in unrelated parallel lines. This tends to be true in both secular and Christian education. This is one of the reasons why Evangelical Christians have been taken by surprise at the tremendous shift that has come in our generation. We have studied our exegesis as exegesis, our theology as theology, our philosophy as philosophy; we study something about art as art; we study music as music; without understanding that these are things of man, and the things of man are never unrelated parallel lines.”

– Schaeffer, Escape From Reason, 211
