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.

Great material

The concepts are scaffolded. The material is succinct and clear. Very good resource.

Very timely resource for our generation

As a Pastor who also leads a classical Christian school, this book is an excellent resource for thinking well about handling common challenges for leaders. Super practical and will get right to the heart of the matter. No clutter or nonsense, brief and to the point. If you lead in any capacity, you need this book!!

Excellent

This resource is helpful in our homeschool reading routine. It helps navigate discussion and helps my daughter to think about story.

Wonderful Guidance for Christians at all Maturity Levels

This book/devotional is outstanding. I appreciate his use and organization of Scripture formatted with minimal commentary. An excellent balance of Scripture (first) and man's commentary (second). Every Christian, at every maturity level, will find this a helpful book in their faithful walk with Christ. Praise the Lord for this work!

Excellent

Time has flown by, and my firstborn is 4. We have tried lots of things to ignite a passion for reading, and have thrown up our hands… until now. This was well worth the money. My son is now confidently conquering the first set of book, and I can’t wait to see how this continues to blossom.

Thanks to the creators of this set and to Canon Press for connecting us. I will forever be grateful !

Cheers,

Samuel and the Flynn Family.

Great little book

I’ve enjoyed reading this book. The service and shipping is excellent as always

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.
