Discovering, Recovering, Uncovering: The Lost Wisdom behind the Lost Tools


by
Ken Myers June 11, 2011


Presented at:
SCL Conference 2011

ABSTRACT:

For all modern people, its tempting- even for educators with the best motivations- to reduce the classical approach to a technique in service of ends quite different from those that were served in the great tradition. This seminar will encourage a deeper reorientation of our goals by highlighting some books that describe the telos of classical educations.

Ken Myers
As host of the Mars Hill Audio Journal since 1992, Ken Myers has interviewed hundreds of authors of books that contribute to understanding the challenges faced by Christians in modernity. A frequent speaker at classical Christian schools (and at SCL conferences), Myers has applied the wisdom from those interviews to the challenge of enculturating the next generation of believers. A graduate of the University of Maryland (B.A. in Communications) and Westminster Theological Seminary (M.A.R. in theological studies), Myers's early career as an arts and humanities editor at National Public Radio stimulated his life-long interest in discovering how contemporary culture took the form it now has, and how the consequences of the Gospel require Christians to embody counter-cultural alternatives.
