When Harry Became Sally | Ryan Anderson

The transgender movement has hit breakneck speed. It’s gone from something that most Americans had never heard of to a cause claiming the mantle of civil rights. Can a boy be “trapped” in a girl’s body? Can modern medicine “reassign” sex? What’s the loving response to a friend or child experiencing a gender-identity conflict? What should our laws say on these issues? Drawing on the best insights from biology, psychology and philosophy, When Harry Became Sally author Ryan T. Anderson offers a balanced approach to policy issues, a nuanced vision of human embodiment and a sober and honest survey of the costs of getting human nature wrong.

Ancient Hinges: How the Classical Virtues Inform Transformational Leadership | D. Michael Lindsay

The cardinal virtues of temperance, fortitude, prudence, and justice were espoused by Plato, Cicero, and Marcus Aurelius long before Christianity formally adopted them. Through the classical influence on the scholastics, Christian scholars like Thomas Aquinas, and poets like Dante Alighieri came to understand the immense value of these virtues. If two thousand years of scholarship has defended these virtues, we would be wise to take note. Drawing from his own research, D. Michael Lindsay argues for a renewed understanding of everything the cardinal virtues have to offer us in fulfilling our own callings and in shaping the lives of the next generation of leaders.

Everything Old is Au Courant Again. Why Classical Education Helps You Compete in Global Alpha Cities | Gregory Thornbury

This session will discuss why a classical education prepares students to "think around corners" in a highly competitive urban marketplace. Over-professionalization and modern theories of education have produced a generation of young professionals not as well prepared for the rapidly changing job market. Biblical examples coupled with current research will be examined.

What in the World is “Classical Christian Education”? | Davies Owens

“Classical Christian Education” is one of the most difficult “products” to market. A simple and memorable definition eludes most people. We have all been there… the question comes… we give an elaborate answer that includes Latin, uniforms, old books, the Trivium. The response back is often a look of curiosity… like being told the best form of transportation is a covered wagon. Knowing who is asking the question (parents, teachers, students, donors, college advisors, etc.). and how to fit your response to them makes a difference, too. In this session, we will examine the various definitions of “Classical Christian Education” and how to explain it clearly, winsomely and accurately. This session aims to help educators in the areas of marketing, parent education and retention.
