an the Bible be trusted as a verifiable document for teaching or learning in the 21st Century? To what extent can the word of God be used as relevant material in various disciplines? Scholars across several disciplines

raised these questions and recommended answers as Babcock University hosted the 4th edition of the International Conference on Faith Integration, June 30 - July 2, 2021, virtually.

This year’s theme, Faith Integration: The Vertical and the Horizontal aimed at providing answers to issues which often plague intellectuals on the nexus between God and man.

It also provided participants platform for cross-fertilization of ideas

and professional networking. Be- sides the plenary session presentations, more than 40 papers

were submitted from scholars globally. According to the Convener, Prof. Constance Nwosu, the conference which attracted more than 150 scholars, was a success.

“We had more than enough papers submitted and some we had to turn down due to late submission. But in all, we give God the glory.” She is optimistic that the papers would not only contribute to knowledge, but would provide a

“harvest of recommendations affirming that faith integration

is sine qua non to finding solutions to problems and bridging the gaps in the various aspects of life.” 

“The conference was spiritually refreshing and very educative,” said participant, Associate Prof. of Private & Commercial Law, School of Law & Security Studies, Babcock University, Dr. Dorcas Odunaike, 

“I was able to see how through my connection with God, I could better relate with others and develop theories in my field,” said Dr. Akinola Babalola, Associate Prof. of Agriculture, Babcock University.
