The Case For Classical Christian Education By: Douglas Wilson The Case For Classical Christian Education

The myth of neutrality, pluralism and secularism have thoroughly infilterated the school systems of today. We create the “No Child Left Behind Act”, increase after-school programs and try out new methods, yet the problems continue. Illiteracy, low math scores, shameful knowledge of geography, not to mention the crime, drugs and lewd behavior of our schools are enough to show that our solutions aren’t working the way we’d like them to. Douglas Wilson lays the blame squarely on the fact that schools are neutral about morality, purporting that education is essentially religious in nature. Building upon this premise, he advocates a return to Christian classical education, emphasizing early childhood learning and a system based upon the word of God. 256 indexed pages.

For the Children's Sake: Foundations of Education for Home and School (Child-Life Book) For the Children’s Sake: Foundations of Education for Home and School

by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay

Every parent and teacher wants to give their children the best education possible. Everyone would like education to be a joyous adventure and celebration of life, as well as a solid preparation for living. Sadly, most education today falls far short of this goal.But as Susan Schaeffer Macaulay shows it doesn’t have to be this way. Education can be a wonderful, life-enriching, joyous experience.For the Children’s Sakeis a book about what education can be–for your child, in your home, and in your school. It is based first on a Christian understanding of what it means to be human–to be a child, a parent, a teacher–and on the Christian meaning of life. At the same time it is deeply practical. Many of the central ideas have been tried and proven true over a century in almost every kind of educational situation. The ideas are in fact so true that they can be applied equally at home, in different schools, in Africa, in the inner city, and in your own community. But they are also ideas which Susan and her husband Ranald Macaulay have tried and proven in their own family and school experience.For the Children’s Sakeis a book which can help every parent and teacher awaken the young minds of their children and give them a new richness, stability, and joy for living.

Love Your God With All Your MindLove Your God With All Your Mind

by J. P. Moreland

The mind plays an important role in Christianity. Unfortunately, many of us leave our minds behind when it comes to our faith. In Love Your God with All Your Mind, J. P. Moreland presents a logical case for the role of the mind in spiritual transformation. He challenges us to develop a Christian mind and to use our intellect to further God’s kingdom through evangelism, apologetics, worship, and vocation.

Total Truth: Liberating Christianity from Its Cultural CaptivityTotal Truth: Liberating Christianity from Its Cultural Captivity

By Nancy Pearcey, Foreword by Phillip E. Johnson

Is God a public figure?

Does Christianity have a legitimate role to play in the public realm of politics, business, law, and education?

Or are secularists right?

When they relegate religion to the strictly private realm of faith and feelings?

In Total Truth, Nancy Pearcey offers a razor-sharp analysis of the split between public and private, fact and feelings. She reveals the strategies of secularist gatekeepers who use this division to banish biblical principles from the cultural mainstream, stripping Christianity of its power to challenge and redeem the whole of culture.

How can we overcome this divide? Unify our fragmented lives? Recover authentic spirituality? With compelling examples from the struggles of real people, Pearcey shows how to liberate Christianity from its cultural captivity. She walks readers through practical, hands-on steps for developing a full-orbed Christian worldview. Finally, she makes a passionate case that Christianity is not just religious truth but truth about total reality. It is total truth.

The Reason for God by Timothy KellerThe Reason for God

by Timothy Keller

Why does God allow suffering in the world?

How could a loving God send people to Hell?

Why isn’t Christianity more inclusive?

How can one religion be “right” and the others “wrong”?

Why have so many wars been fought in the name of God?

These are just a few of the questions and doubts even ardent believers wrestle with today. As the founding pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, Timothy Keller has compiled a list of the most frequently voiced “doubts” skeptics bring to his church as well as the most important reasons for faith. And in the New York Times bestselling The Reason for God, he addresses each doubt and explains each reason.

Keller uses literature, philosophy, real-life conversations, and reasoning to explain how faith in a Christian God is a soundly rational belief, held by thoughtful people of intellectual integrity with a deep compassion for those who truly want to know the truth.
