Why is Discipleship Key to What We Are Trying to Accomplish in CCE?

by Howard Davis November 8, 2018

It may seem obvious, but discipleship is key to what we are trying to accomplish through our Classical Christian schools. However, discipleship is increasingly harder to accomplish in our post-everything world, and it often gets lost as background among all the other goals that we are seeking to accomplish. This seminar will look at the […]

The Challenge of Cultural Correctness

by Bob Benne November 8, 2018

More threatening to Christian Classical schools than “political correctness” is “cultural correctness,” the widely disseminated moral and religious assumptions that are often embedded in Christian parents and students, even those who are likely to come to Christian Classical schools. What is “cultural correctness,” and how does it operate to undermine Christian institutions? How should we […]

A Theology of Knitting? Bonaventure, the Common Arts, and the Human Good

by Phil Donnelly July 21, 2017

One of the most remarkable features of contemporary culture is that many of the “common” (mechanical) arts of tangible making that were once understood to be practical, now seem useless. The practitioners of almost any common art today, whether black-smithing or bread baking, now find that they can no longer earn a living through these […]

Falling in Love with Words: Or, How to Read a Poem

by Christopher Benson June 16, 2016

To really fall in love with words, a Christian teacher of poetry must first be in love with the Word, that is to say, Jesus Christ – the poet par excellence. Right belief (orthodoxy) about the Word precedes and pervades a right practice (orthopraxy) of studying words. For an exercise in slow reading, we will […]

Panel Discussion: Teaching Bible and Theology in a Classical School

by Jim Watkins June 28, 2015

The Heavens Declare the Glory of God

by John Mays June 28, 2015

Christians have always affirmed this testimony from Psalm 19. But the breadth of the revelation of God’s glory in nature is far wider than we often appreciate. In this seminar we will examine a wide variety of ways in which the heavens declare God’s glory to us, including anthropic implications in contemporary science that have […]

Christian Dante

by Christian Kopff June 28, 2015

In Paradiso 12 Dante says God rescued Christendom “through grace alone” (per sola grazia). Guido da Montefeltro (inferno 27) and his son Buonconte (Purgatorio 5) exemplify God’s grace, a theme that permeates the Comedy.

How a Theology of Wisdom Undergirds Classical Education: The Figure of Speaking Wisdom in Proverbs and Beyond

by Jason Barney June 28, 2015

“Wisdom cries aloud in the street; in the squares she thunders!” (Prov 1:20). The figure of speaking Wisdom is more than just an interesting literary device. Jewish and Christian tradition saw in a theology of Wisdom a foundation for what we would call classical education. In this presentation I propose to show how the theology […]
