As we survey the educational ruins around us, classical and Christian education appears to be an idea whose time has come again. More and more Christian parents are seeing the failures of modern education, and they are hungering for a substantive alternative, one that has been tested and found to be good. As the trend toward a classical and Christian education increases, many parents are seeking ways to develop such an approach in their home schools.
This booklet introduces the topic of classical and Christian education with an overview of the Trivium (grammar, logic, rhetoric) as used in a biblical context. It highlights the unique advantages of such an approach in the home school and seeks to address questions and problems that a classical approach poses for home schoolers.
