In the Christian university classroom, we too often focus on what we know, and we ignore what we desire. In his book, Desiring the Kingdom: Worship, Worldview, and Cultural Formation, James K.A. Smith asserts that what we desire forms our identity, often superceding what we’ve learned or what we know. Using examples of passion and learning in literature, I will argue that we—as Christian professors and Christian students—can integrate habits into our lives that cultivate a passion for spiritual formation that creates a lifelong and energetic love for learning.
