In Chapter 8, David Hicks looks at “The Promise of Christian Paideia.” In this chapter, his discussion of classical education shifts from the ancient Greeks to the era of Christian education. In this episode, our panelists consider sections 1 and 2 in which Hicks outlines the problems of classical pagan education and looks at how Christ provides the answer to those problems.
Why does anyone in a democracy need a classical education anyway? In this episode, Marc Hays, Lisa Bailey, and Jennifer Courtney finish up their discussion of Chapter 7. They consider four objectives of a classical education in a democracy and apply those ideas to our efforts to reclaim classical, Christian home education.
In this episode, our panelists ask some really important questions about classical education. Is classical education elitist or is it for everyone? Is classical education a good form of education for a modern, technologically advanced society? Is classical education a good form of education for democracy? Listen in as they explore these questions and be inspired to give your children a royal education with plenty of truth, goodness, and beauty as they seek to become more like Christ.
In this episode, Jennifer Courtney, Marc Hays, and Daniel Shirley finish their discussion of Chapter 6. Join them as they think about how to educate both the heart and head of our children. Listen in as they consider how to resist modern notions of education.
