Publisher's Summary

Published almost 20 years ago, Douglas Wilson’s Case for Classical Christian Education is a call for parents and educators to do more than just teach kids how to read or to do math and science. Instead, parents and teachers need to educate children’s minds, hearts, and imaginations.

Both homeschooling parents and Christians seeking to build schools will find a lot of guidance from this book. Wilson explains the benefits of an education that is both distinctively classical and distinctively Christian, and explains what such an education might look like. He also draws on years of educating and pastoring to talk about how parents and teachers can manage schools well and train their children’s hearts. Education is not just preparing kids for the job market, but should be about instilling discipline, character, and love for God and the world he has made.

Douglas Wilson has been the pastor for Christ Church for over 40 years and is a father of three and grandfather of 17. He has helped found many educational institutions such as New Saint Andrews College, Logos School, and Greyfriars Hall. His book Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning helped launch the Classical Christian Education movement, including the Association of Classical Christian Schools which now has over a hundred Christian schools across the country.
