                           Faith-Learning Integration: An Overview. In this essay, William Hasker attempts to map the territory between broadly global and narrowly disciplinary discussions of the integration of faith and learning. After discussing the nature of and necessity for such integration, he evaluates several strategies for integration. He concludes by outlining dimensions of faith-learning integration in both the theoretical and applied disciplines. Mr. Hasker teaches philosophy at Huntington College.
