Whose Rationality? Classical Christian Education and the Ordering of Faith and Reason

The reform of education embodied in the classical Christian school movement represents a challenge to Enlightenment assumptions about the nature and ends of reason and about the scope and consequences of religious belief. But the terms and ramifications of this conflict are not always clearly understood. Moreover, much contemporary Christian discipleship and apologetics (perhaps unwittingly) reinforces Enlightenment presuppositions more than the classical Christian understanding. In this workshop, Ken Myers will discuss how a more deliberately Christocentric account of reason ought to inform the shape of teaching in Christian schools.
