And for my quote of the week:
On christian liberal arts, taken from Liberal Arts for the Christian Life edited by Jeffry C. Davis and Philip G. Ryken:
" The word Christian, as a noun, refers to someone who takes seriously the teachings of Jesus Christ and follows them, as found in the Gospels; and as an adjective, it means an approach that demonstrates consistency with Christian teachings, often promoting a biblical worldview. . . Christian education takes the basic tenets of the historic orthodox church seriously. . . .Christian liberal learning builds upon biblical views of bondage (sin) and salvation (freedom), and promotes ways of thinking and living that enable students to realize God's purpose for their lives, and, in response, to offer their lives freely back to God in his service. . . .. . . the arts represented subjects of study, what we now call "disciplines", that directed human capacities according to particular procedures of thinking and behaving towards beneficial end. . . .Thus, the christian liberal arts college or university continues in the tradition of faithful learning that emphasizes study as a form of worship, affirming the creator as the source of all things that are possibly known and recognizing his immanence in all that we examine all that we know, and all that we do.Christian Liberal arts learning, rightly understood and done, sees God at the center of everything."
