It’s autumn, and that means that The Harvard Ichthus is looking for new writers, designers, businesspeople, poets, artists, and photographers. Some questions you might have:
Who are you?
In short: We are smart people who like to think and learn about important things and have fun while doing it. Here’s more:
In an age of skepticism, many come to the College with misconceptions about Christianity and whether a vigorous intellectual life is compatible with a Christian one. The Harvard Ichthus seeks to engage, critique, and ultimately defy these falsehoods about Christian faith. We will do so in a thoughtful, generous, and professional manner that bears witness to a God who desires-commands!-each of us to love Him with all our mind.
The grand vision of The Ichthus is two-fold: First, we lay claim to the millennia-old and still-vibrant Christian intellectual tradition, stepping into a rich and storied lineage of Christians dialoguing with each other in the corporate search for Veritas. In so doing, we train a new generation of thinking Christians to use their God-given intellects for His glory. And second, we publicize and distribute this forum so that non-Christians at Harvard can see the weight of two thousand years of argumentation and interact with the Christian tradition. In this way, we expose a generation of thinking non-Christians to a Gospel that promises to engage them from the neck up, as well.
