Item Description...
As the trend toward a classical and Christian education increases, many parents are seeking ways to develop such an approach in their home schools. This booklet introduces the topic of classical and Christian education with an overview of the Trivium (grammar, logic, rhetoric) as used in a biblical context. We removed all the gnostic, Neil Postman parts that plagued the earlier version.

Publishers Description
As we survey the educational ruins around us, classical and Christian education appears to be an idea whose time has come again. 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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good Introduction - from a Christian perspective  Oct 1, 2002
This little book is an excellent introduction to the methods of Classical education, especially as it pertains to a Christian worldview. It is a quick and easy read, and (best of all) inexpensive.
I do have a few critisms. [1] The authors tend to get off point a few times (we don't need a primer on Latin grammar in a book like this) [2] The bibliography tends to stay "in the family" of the contributing authors and lastly [3] I would expect superior writing style from promoters of Classical education.
Power Packed Little "Pamphlet!"  Feb 23, 2002
While a small "book", it is power packed. It addresses everything from your worldview to getting started in the process of "re" educating yourself in preparation for homeschooling using the classical method. If you are considering whether or not you want to use the method or want to get your method on track, this book is perfect. Personally, I was actually exhorted in a few areas-just what I needed! Well worth the small price!
Good book, can't go wrong  Sep 30, 2000
The author provides a good background and justification for returning to the classical approach of teaching children. The reading lists are fairly good except for the suspicious inclusion of a number of texts written by the author. I felt that the chapter concerning centering your children's education around Christ sounded very emotionally charged which greatly contrasted the author's previous chapter on logic and argumentation. I don't disagree that the education of Christian children should be centered about Christ. I do think the author should have used the logical method of argumentation described in the previous chapters to argue his point rather than lapse into emotionally charged religious rhetoric that he (and Plato) disapproved of at the beginning of his text. The most overriding lesson I learned from this text, though, is one which more homeschooling and classical education advocates must learn and teach: providing your child with a education better than that which you were provided requires that you first obtain the education with which you are attempting to endow your children. For this reason (and that teensy little price up there) I highly recommend this book to anyone who is frustrated with the quality of public education in America whether or not you are considering homeschooling your child.
A "Must Read" for Home Educators  Mar 14, 2000
This outstanding booklet explains what classical education is and how to implement it in the home school. The author describes the ancient medeival model of the trivium (the three stages of learning: grammer, dialectic and rhetoric) and urges a return to this time tested method of education in a reformed Christian context. Included are recommended reading lists. I consider this booklet essential reading for home educators.
