Reviews - What do customers think about Wisdom and Eloquence: A Christian Paradigm for Classical Learning?
Strong history and explanation of the Liberal Arts Jan 1, 2007
Our authors have been involved in education for many years both public and private; Christian and "secular." They are associated with the Society of Classical Learning and speak with profound insight and experience. The strength of the book is the historical discussion of the Liberal Arts and their interaction with Miss Sayers' 1947 essay, "The Lost Tools fo Learning." In addition, they demonstrate the use of the Trivium among Christians of various ages over the past 2500 years of Western history. I don't agree with everything our authors say, but overall it is one of the best discussions in the neo-classical school movement.
