Classical Education and Christian Discipleship: Reforming Men (Part II)

Brandon Shuman discusses the role that classical education plays in the forming of a disciple-maker.

In part two, we will consider the remarkable similarities and the complementary functions of classical education and Christian discipleship, even as we draw distinctions between them – the most important of which is that as disciple-makers, we are not seeking to sculpt better versions of Adam, but rather we are God’s instruments in His molding of young men and women into the brilliant image of Jesus.
