The Center for Faith and Culture does not endorse nor necessarily agree with all the information available on these sites.
The L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture seeks to engage culture as salt and light, presenting and defending the Christian faith and demonstrating its implications for all areas of human existence.
The Center has a two-fold purpose: (1) To convey graciously and apply effectively the Christian worldview to all areas of culture and to the human condition; (2) To encourage and support the Church in its redemptive work.
In the spirit of the L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture's commitment to engage culture as salt and light, we seek to encourage the development of emerging scholars in presenting and defending the Christian Faith and demonstrating its implications for all areas of human existence. This page of our website is dedicated to the display of the research produced by students whose work exemplifies the mission and purpose of the Center. Although currently this portion of our website is in its earliest stages, we hope that in time it will flourish as an exhibition of the development of emerging scholars contributing to the cultural dialogue.
Our first piece for display is a research paper completed by one of our 2009 summer interns, Joel Heimbach. Joel currently is a junior at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is double majoring in United States History and Peace, War and Defense. In addition to interning at the L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture last summer, Joel has also served as an intern at the Ethics and Religion Liberty Commission in Washington D.C.
