A Shofar Call: A Biblical Core Curriculum That Prepares Students for Today’s Issues
In the Old Testament, the shofar was a ram’s horn that was used for two purposes: for calling people to worship and for calling them into battle. These two concepts are related. Christ-followers are called not only into communion with God but also into battle with the devil. The greatest battle of our time is the spiritual battle for the minds and hearts of people whom God loves. Students at Christian Institutions of higher learning need to be equipped for the fight of faith. Sadly, far too many evangelicals today are inadequately prepared to articulate and defend their own faith.
