Faith-learning integration is an issue readily apparent for Christians in higher education. This article addresses the subject of faith-learning integration in the Bible college curriculum. Concerns over curriculum fragmentation in Christian higher education and its subsequent effects on the spiritual formation of students are examined. A paradigm for faith-learning based on Richard Niebuhr's Christ and
