Christian Education

Posted in Christ and Culture,Education by sosipater on July 26, 2006

This is an outstanding article on Chrisitan higher education by David Dockery over at BP Press.  This certainly has implications for all forms of education, be it college or grade school. 

From the article:

Being a faithful Christian university will involve much more than mere piety or spirituality, which by itself will not sustain the idea of a Christian university. The Christian intellectual tradition calls for rigorous Christian thinking in all areas, as historically exemplified in the work of Origen, Augustine, Aquinas, Bernard of Clairveaux, Erasmus, Luther, Calvin, Kepler, Edwards, Kuyper, Broadus and others. This tradition confesses the sovereignty of the triune God over the whole cosmos, in all spheres and kingdoms, visible and invisible.

Religio et erudition,
