Theological ignorance is, in large measure, a product of two otherwise positive things: separation of church and state and public funded education up to the secondary level. The result is that students coming into universities are often not taught to think critically or creatively about theological topics. I suggest strategies and resources for dealing with this ignorance through familiarity with the Bible, familiarity with theology and philosophy, and familiarity with issues pertaining to the concept of God.
