For the New Christian Intellectual is a worldview ministry created by Jacob Brunton and Cody Libolt.
Our goal is to equip a new generation of thinkers who will give a voice to the Classical Christian principles of reason, rational self-interest, individualism, and individual rights.
We offer a way to change the direction of modern Christian thought toward something more intellectually solid and more biblically faithful.
In a time when the world seems to be losing its mind, and losing hope, we seek to restore the impact of the Christian mind, and thus to be salt and light in the midst of an increasingly dark world.
We seek to restore a vision of Jesus Christ as one who is rationally worthy of all admiration and devotion.
The teachings of Jesus, and of the entire God-inspired Scriptures, have been badly misrepresented by many of today’s intellectuals and teachers. Among the worst errors are the promotion of fideism (faith as a means to knowledge), altruism (self-sacrifice as an end in itself), and "social justice" (the tribalistic assault against individual rights).
Such poisonous ideas flood contemporary Christian culture, and we aim to be stronghold against them.

Ayn Rand and Christianity?
Many of our friends (Christian and non-Christian) have asked about the connection between our project and the work of the novelist-philosopher Ayn Rand.
We do not shy away from admitting that we draw eagerly from her philosophy—much in the same way that the medieval scholastics drew heavily from non-Christian philosophers such as Aristotle.
But, just as many back then asked, “what has Jerusalem to do with Athens?” so many today might ask, “what has Christianity to do with Ayn Rand?”
Here’s a short discussion of our views on Ayn Rand and Christianity.
