Item description for Repairing the Ruins: The Classical and Christian Challenge to Modern Education by Canon Press & Douglas Wilson...

As parents, it is easy for us to look back and see the shortcomings of our own education. Since many of us were taught in public schools, we often have a pretty good idea of what we don't want our children to learn. But what exactly should we give them instead? The authors of Repairing the Ruins, a group of experienced teachers and school administrators, faced this same question when they first embarked on the journey of education. And they found a tried and true answer in classical Christian education. Here they explain what makes classical Christian education different from modern methods and why it offers a distinctly Christian alternative. Building upon this foundation, the authors provide parents with the "Whys and Hows" of the Trivium, tips on planning curriculum, wisdom in designing education to serve the heart as well as the mind, and advice on starting up schools. For all who have ever wondered where to begin with their children's education, Repairing the Ruins comes alongside with words of comfort and direction.

Publishers Description
Classical and Christian education is moving into high gear. This collection of essays from teachers and administrators extends the discussion beyond the basics. It not only delves deeper into foundational issues, it also focuses on practice, providing concrete instruction for dayschool and homeschool teachers, administrators, parents, and students. It offers no advice on how to fix any actual repairs your school building might need. Divided into three major sections, the book first sets the framework of Christian worldview thinking. The second section develops the more practical side of the classical model, focusing on specific disciplines. The final section explains how to make this model work in this century. Contributors include Marlin Detweiler, Tom Garfield, Douglas Jones, Jim Nance, Chris Schlect, Tom Spencer, and Douglas Wilson.

Reviews - What do customers think about Repairing the Ruins: The Classical and Christian Challenge to Modern Education?

Profound  Mar 7, 2005
Douglas Wilson in this book as with all of his others on Classical Christian teaching clearly demonstrates the why and the need for Christians to return to their God given duty to train up their children in the ways of God in order to have a biblical worldview rather than a secular one. What he says is so profound and enlightening and he puts it in such a logical way that will astound you. God calls all of us to have a higher thinking than the worlds view this will help you get to that realm and teach your children as well.
Repairing the Ruins  Mar 14, 2000
This is an excellent volume of essays by various authors presenting the philosophy and practical "how to's" of Christian classical education. Anyone interested in recovering excellence in education should read this book.
