Description: The fact that education in our culture today is failing our youth needs no debate. Why education is failing our youth is perhaps not so obvious. Our education is trapped in the box of modernity and post-modernity, and we, as Christians, too often, seek to solve the problem of education within this same box. However, traditional Christian education takes us out of this box of iniquity and into an approach to the world enlivened by the teachings of the Church Fathers that presents to our children life and life abundantly. So, where do we begin? We must begin with the fundamental assumptions that set forth the basis upon which traditional Christian education rests. In doing so, these assumptions form the foundation upon which our youth are able to make sense of the world around them and establish solid judgment in relationship to a culture gone astray. Written as a series of letters and in an accessible style for educators and youth alike, this volume provides the critical foundation that is too often overlooked in traditional Christian education today.
