Christian educators strive to provide classroom environments that tap into all recognised intelligences that have the added incentive of helping prepare their students for a relationship with Jesus Christ. This chapter provides information pertaining to the intelligence that is most important in the Christian School context. For the past half-century, scholars have been working to understand how the brain interprets, comprehends, and examines the world. The recognition of nine intelligences has provided teachers with the potential for engaging with students and enabling them to perform at their best. This chapter explores spiritual intelligence, ascertaining its origins and evolution. It introduces those scholars who have contributed to the concept's development, providing evidence of the acknowledgement and advancement of this intelligence within organisations and educational settings, with a focus on its practice and application.
