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.

This book decluttered my recommended books on marriage

Short. Concise. Immediately helpful.
Your marriage matters too much to endlessly read platitudes you know so well already. If your looking for help, which is why you are reading this review, just order this and follow its principles.

Best modern Christian literature.

Read the review title again. Read the book if you haven't read it yet. Then read the sequel : Death By Living.

Reforming Marriage: Gospel Living for Couples

A great teaching tool

My four sons (ages 8-13) look forward to meeting a new adorable fallacy each week, as do I. It helps that we are huge fans of N.D.Wilson already (the oldest having read every book he’s written, and the others well on their way) In true N.D. Wilson fashion, these fallacies come to life through the art of wordsmithing. Even the answers(each chapter has review questions, how cool is that?!)in the back of the book, which are very instrumental for me, are hilarious and entertaining for the boys.

Wonderful

Wonderful book! Engaging, academic but readable, fascinating. Loved every page.

Great book

Good read but not for young kids

This series is very good but the recommended age is 8 to 12. These books are way too dark and scary fir that age group. I am enjoying it though.

Femina

Love it. Gives such wonderful encouragement.

Learned a lot and was very well written

The several month wait was not my favorite. But having all 176 verses of Psalm 119 set to music more than made up for it.

A Loving Kick in the Pants!

This is exactly what I needed! It felt like sitting down with a Godly, older woman for coffee. A great balance of truth and love-kind, but not afraid to point out your sin!

Great Summation

The video is a helpful summary of the book of the same name. We appreciate the humor and the challenges. We pray God will use this video to help encourage men to joyful and fully embrace their roles as the head of their household for the glory of God!

Just what I needed

As a new Christian, I needed this daily encouragement in my life! It is encouraging and honest.

Love it

Absolutely wonderful daily encouragement for me right where I am, full of truths that I can grasp and apply immediately.

I am very happy George Grant put this together for all to read. It really shows you the horrible person she was. It shines a light on planned Parenthood that makes you feel sick to your stomach. This lady was simply the worst.

Simply great

This is our first kids book from Canon and it was great. The story and art were both amazing and our daughter enjoys it!

Guided discussion through this Beautifully written book.

This book is written in a flowing, beautiful, and poetic stream of thought, nearly a stream of consciousness. It's insight into worldview and the role of philosophy in Christianity is enlightening. Worth the read! The study guide is a great roadmap to having a group discussion of this book. The questions prompt great discussions.

Great purchase

This is not a daily fluff quote. This has substance, and will challenge you and help you keep your focus on eternity as you go through your day. And it won’t get old as you use it year after year.
