ABSTRACT
The article discusses the conflicting principles that arose in the Department of Religion at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill in the 1950s. Arnold S. Nash, a British theologian, believed the role of biblical text as a theological resource for students to roam the modern world and for the existential upliftment through inspiration. Another theologian named James Gray contends for the Judeo-Christian outlook in a naturalistic environment. According to the article, both ideas were defensible, always in conflict, but not so different.
