The Case for Classical Christian Education

Published almost twenty years ago, Douglas Wilson’s Case for Classical Christian Education is a call for parents and educators to do more than just teach kids how to read or to do math and science. Instead, parents and teachers need to educate children’s minds, hearts, and imaginations.

Both homeschooling parents and Christians seeking to build schools will find a lot of guidance from this book. Wilson explains the benefits of an education that is both distinctively classical and distinctively Christian and what such an education might look like. He also draws on years of educating and pastoring to talk about how parents and teachers can manage schools well and train their children’s hearts.

Education is not just preparing kids for the job market, but should be about instilling discipline, character, and love for God and the world He has made.

 

Excused Absence

Get them out—now.

Many Christian parents oppose our godless American culture, but how many of us are willing to put our money where our mouth is?

In this short but spicy book, Douglas Wilson calls for Christian parents to remove their kids from public schools. Beginning with the commands in Scripture for parents to raise up their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord, he shows that parents must not send their children to be catechized by unbelieving teachers and peers.

Although he has many hard words for public schools, Doug pulls no punches on parents who assume that a Christian curriculum alone will fix all their problems. Parents need to train their kids’ minds, bodies, and hearts so that they are prepared for the real world. This is a high and difficult calling, but we can look to God’s promises to help us as we train our children.

 

Classical Me, Classical Thee: Squander Not Thine Education

Everyone is so busy giving the classical education to you students that they have forgotten to actually tell you why it matters...

Rebekah Merkle knows which high school classes you like and which you roll your eyes at, which books you enjoy and which you kinda skim. That's because she went through this whole thing called classical education, too: She was a guinea pig in one of the very first classical Christian schools in the country.
Written for students by a (former) student, Classical Me, Classical Thee is lighthearted and—most importantly for you busy high-schoolers—very short. It has a simple goal: to explain why you students are doing what you do in class. (SPOILER: Grades aren't the point—you won't use your knowledge of the Iliad Book 5 every year until you die.)

What you do in class is a drill—and nobody drills for the sake of the drill. You do drills so that you can win the game. The real tragedy, though, would be if you didn't know you were doing drills... or didn't know there was a game at all.
Grades aren't the point. So drill to win.
 

Classical Education and The Homeschool

Homeschooling is an adventure, and it often feels like you're barely keeping ahead of your child. Why do we do it, and how can we do that well?

As we survey the educational ruins around us, classical and Christian education appears to be an idea whose time has come again, both in schools and in homeschools. 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 before and found to be good. Classical and Christian education presents them with just such an alternative.

This collection of essays by Douglas Wilson, Douglas Jones, and Wesley Callihan gives both a hearty defense of this kind of education, as well as descriptions of what it should look like on the ground.

Leadership and Emotional Sabotage: Resisting the Anxiety That Will Wreck Your Family, Destroy Your Church, and Ruin the World

Revealing and Convicting

"Buy truth, and sell it not." That is what comes to mind with this book. The truth contained inside this short work is potent, clear, and eminently practical. Hold fast to the realities within and you will find your world strengthened and your spine stiffened.

Leadership and Emotional Sabotage: Resisting the Anxiety That Will Wreck Your Family, Destroy Your Church, and Ruin the World

God knew I needed this book

This book came out at the same time a situation exploded in my life. It helped me see not only how others had tried to emotionally sabotage me, but also convicted me on how I had allowed myself to compromise in the events leading up to the controversy. Joe Rigney gave me a concise treatment on the biblical view of power dynamics and relationships, and inspired me to practice joyful, sober-minded faithfulness moving forward. Thank you!!

Leadership and emotional sabotage

This book is amazing. It has so much insight on how to lead me family, church, and school in a godly way. I bought 7 copies and I probably need
to buy more because I keep giving them away! Everyone needs a copy!

My daughter loves to pull these books out and start reading them or attempting to read them all by herself. This set of books has made her want to read independently and I also love hearing her laugh at the story lines.

It came as expected and was very well wrapped up and protected.

Not as many questions as usual

This is a good reading guide, but it's only 3 pages, and lasted for 3 days of reading. All the others I've gotten are for chapter books, which are 20+ pages of questions and last for 20+ days of readings.

Simple and Helpful

This book is Biblical, Helpful, Convicting, and Encouraging. A fantastic resource for those who want to fulfill their God-given role in family, business, and community.

Best book I’ve ever read

Can’t put into words how incredible this book is. The encouragement it is to see how God can use a Christian ruler to radically change the direction of an apathetic nation heading towards apostasy. The strategy King Alfred used to redirect England is the same strategy that we must employ. Repent, fight off the pagans, restore right worship, implement Christian education, overhaul the legal system to line up with the general equity of Israel’s civil code.

This book is a must read

The wisdom the world has been lacking

There are many ideas and schemes people have developed regarding leadership. Almost all lack the global biblical grounding this book has. Each page has impactful, solid, and virtuous teaching to help people be the leaders God wants them to be.

Little Book With A Big Punch

"Girly men" have been abandoning their God-given responsibilities over the years. This short book packs a big punch and a call to action in Godly leadership in the home, Church, and in the world. Men need to be men again!

A rare, super useful book: great clarity and thankfully concise. It’s priceless.

An Excellent Classic

This is a very well written classic with great content for children and adults. A charming fairy tale with deeper truths involved. You also can pick up some of the notes that C S Lewis took into his Chronicles of Narnia Series. The Canon edition of this classic has beautiful art and is well formatted.

Very helpful content

A Historical Novel With Application Today

This was an enjoyable read. Although written for a younger audience, adults will enjoy it. One note of critique, it would be nice to have a note explaining which characters are historical, and which are fictional, and maybe a short bio on those based on actual people. King Alfred and his brother are historical, but I couldn't find anything on an Ealderman named Edmund. Also, this is about the same point in history that the Turks began to be a problem in Europe. Any correlation?

Absolute gem

A surprisingly great read. Didn't have any expectations going in and was pleasantly surprised, definitely worth a re-read and loved the hardback itself

Must Read for Fathers and Pastors

Christian men are called to be sober-minded. But what does that look like? Joe Rigney helps flesh out that statement, not just hypothetically, but how it looks in your day-to-day life. Men, this book is the encouraging wake-up call you need. Also, buy this for your pastors and elders.

Another way to look at our failure in leadership

A really effective way of explaining men's failure at leadership, how we can look at the issue and how to correct our actions. Very helpful to me.

I thought the book was a measured, balanced and thoroughly biblical. I've recommended it for all of our small group leaders. What he's describing is the main problem pastors have faced since 2020 & will continue to face in the coming years. Be prepared to be called a "drunkard & glutton" like Jesus or "in it for the money" like Paul in order to obey Jesus. He accurately describes what false accusation does and how it works to manipulate pastors & how suffering persecution means suffering "rank falsehoods" that try to turn the hearts of fellow believers against one another. I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend.

My Goto Gift for Trials!

This book has been such a blessing to me personally and to many loved ones. I found it right after a devastating divorce and have read through it yearly since. The short chapters are an ideal size to ponder over without making a big time investment (perfect for a single mom). It’s such a comfort during trials of many kinds and has help to inspire me to learn to sing the Psalms as well as commit large passages to memory. I’ve been gifting copies to women in my life as they go through various trials and they’ve given positive feedback too! One of the biggest things is that it has played a role in getting my aunt back attending church after a decade+ absence. Glory be to God!
