This conference paper was originally published as:

Lockton, H. A. (1990). A Christian worldview of the Geographer's world. In H. Rasi (Ed.),Christ in the classroom. Paper presented at the Faith and Learning Seminar, Avondale College, Cooranbong (pp. 53-74). Silver Spring, MD: Institute for Christian Teaching.


The purpose of this paper is to provide a Christian perspective on the nature of geography and is primarily intended for fellow geographers at both the secondary and tertiary levels. However as geography is only offered in a few Seventh-day Adventist Colleges, it is hoped that this paper will be accessible to non-specialists especially in the social sciences. From this examination it will be shown that the secular paradigms offer a limited view of geographic reality and that a Christian perspective brings an added and necessary dimension.
