Faith Integration Resources

bibliography

Below are some significant works that have been published on the integration of faith with specific disciplines.[1] You may note some disciplines are scant or absent, and this should be seen as an invitation for you to publish in an area where little faith integration has been done (e.g., faith and kinesiology, or faith and speech therapy). There is much room to hear from more diverse voices in each of these fields, as well. Some of the works are older, and while they may be considered “seminal,” it would be best if you could rise to the occasion and address more contemporary issues from a faith integration lens. Despite shortcomings in the bibliography below, these resources should help get you thinking about how integration can be done in your discipline.

Also note that subjects related to Christian ministries are absent in this subject bibliography, because the number of resources that integrate faith and Christian ministries is far too great to include here.
