Douglas Wilson's groundbreaking work identifying the need for classical and Christian schools. In order to be Christ-centered, Christian education must be more than a baptized secularism. In this book, Wilson explains the theology and practice of a classical, Christian education and sets it forth as the only sensible alternative. Paperback, 215 pages.
From the back cover: "Public education in America has run into hard times. Even many within the system admit that it is failing. While many factors contribute, Douglas Wilson lays much of the blame on the idea that education can take place in a moral vacuum. It is not possible for education to be nonreligious, deliberately excluding the basic questions about life. All education builds on the foundation of someone's worldview (teacher's, curriculum writer). Education deals with fundamental questions that require religious answers. Learning to read and write is simply the process of acquiring the tools to ask and answer such questions."
