Davenant House: Wisdom and Worldview


In this video Brad Littlejohn, Peter Escalante, and Jake Meador discuss one of the foundational principles of Davenant House, which is the valuing of Christian wisdom over “Christian worldview.”

The discussion begins with brief comments on why worldview language is, for all its benefits, often an unhelpful way to talk about the way a Christian person sees creation. We then move on to a discussion of how our project to emphasize Christian wisdom relates to the cultural liturgies series by Dr. James K.A. Smith.
