The purpose of this preface is to explain the primary scriptural injunctions for education. It thus provides an introduction to this first volume of Envisioning BYU. It is also a personal credo, outlining views that have animated me over the years. This preface was originally delivered as a talk, titled “A Gospel Ground for Education: An Academic Credo,” to BYU graduate students at the Faith and Scholarship Symposium on February 16, 2005.
The Lord commands us to love Him with all our minds, giving us the gospel duty to seek and love learning and truth.
