    This was a really good collection of essays on an interesting array of issues in the realm of Christian education Doulas Wilson, in his usual somewhat snarky style, provides a thoughtful Biblical analysis in the chapters as follows 1 The Paideia of GodA foundational essay concerning the Biblical mandate and understanding of Christian education.2 Teaching Disadilities Why Johnny Doesn t Learn Much AnyAn assessment of what constitutes learning disabilities and who is really responsible for them.3 [...]

    Another excellent book from Wilson Though the collection as a whole did not focus on the idea of paideia proper as much as I expected, I was quite pleased by a number of his essays, particular those on learning disabilities, classical Christian education, and, interestingly, the importance of school clothes Not a slammer, but certainly a triple.

    If you plan on going to seminary, or sending your children to college, this book will benefit you.

    Ok, so I want to start out by saying I don t want to discount what Douglas Wilson has done for education and that I basically wouldn t have a job if not for the movement he has done so much to advanceEVER.I was pretty unimpressed with a lot of this book I have decided my feelings on Wilson are pretty similar to my feelings on Ayn Rand I really like a lot of his ideas, he just takes them too far I also feel like he likes pushing the envelope that s not necessarily a bad thing I just always get th [...]

    This is the first Wilson book I ve read that I wasn t thrilled about Don t get me wrong, there is a lot of good material in here and it is a valuable resource for any intro into educational reform But the formatting of the writing really discounted the writing itself Hard to follow, random topics every other page, random book critiques and a random defense of the doctrines of grace Again, good material, just a complete lack of flow Why Evangelical Churches aren t was by far the best chapter and [...]

    The first full length book on education by Wilson I ve read I caught an interview he did about a year ago talking about the Classical Education movement, and I am sold on it now If one is at all interested in the Classical Methods or educational reform, that one needs to read this book.I also must now read his others on education In due time of course.And in closing, the essay on the importance of school clothing was surprisingly informative and interesting.

    If you re just starting to look into classical Christian education I d start with Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning by Douglas Wilson This one has focused chapters essays and some are a bit hard to keep up with I think my comprehension level was at about 25% in chapter 6 That s not a bad thing though It goes along with a point made in the book the standard doesn t need be lowered, I need to rise up to it.

    One of Wilson s earlier books about enculturating our students with love for Christ and also with love of learning about what Christ created As usual, filled with hope and the need to get back to work.

    A Christian education is not merely one that teaches how to pass the tests while having a 30 minute chapel session squeezed into the day This book presents a whole educational stage as the world into which you immerse your kids Prime reading for Christian parents of school aged young ns.

    Excellent treatise on education and life Much was covered that I did not expect such as a brief defense of reformed theology I highly recommend this one to any parent interested in a Christian education, or indeed, preserving reforming a Christian culture.

    This was my second read through and don t remember when I read it first but it was just as good the second time and I definitely picked up this time around A must read for any parent or educator

    Very, very good stuff here on Christian eduction as an integral biblical concept and as a practically and pervasively applied theology.

    A good reminder for those of us in the Classical Christian revolution education is than facts it is enculturation at every level.

    Very Good Interesting miscellany of educational concerns from unifroms to voutchers to learning disabilities.

    It s always good to read a book that explains to me exactly why I root for classical Christian education.

    Great book A good way to kick off prep for deciding how to educate my kids The Great Logic Fraud was worth the price of admission all by itself.

    This is a collection of essays concerning Christian education It is not as strong as Repairing the Ruins or Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning in my opinion, but is still very good.
