Music and the Image Bearer: A Philosophy of Musical Stewardship for BJU
As a school established in the liberal arts tradition, Bob Jones University has a responsibility to educate its students in the essentials of culture and the arts and sciences. We believe the visual and performing arts are foundational components of human culture and are vital to the formation and education of the whole person.
In Music and the Image Bearer: A Philosophy of Musical Stewardship for BJU, we have endeavored to set forth our understanding of the purposes and value of music in the Christian life and to provide a helpful framework for students, faculty, and staff to explore and enjoy music to the glory of God. In addition, this document suggests guiding principles for applying this framework within our institution’s various contexts of scholarship, worship, and recreation. Finally, this document articulates the philosophical foundation on which institutional practices and policies are built and regularly reviewed.
