The Classical Mandate for the Church

By June 25, 2020January 9th, 2023No Comments

Why should Christians around the world take interest in classical education? Simply answered, they should because classical education is the heritage of the Christian Church. Dr. Brian Williams explores how this is so and how classical Christian education supports the mission of the Church—the flourishing of individuals and their cultures.
