Learning for Wisdom: Christian Education and the Good Life

272 pages3 hours


Getting an education can lead to a good paying job . . . What could be wrong with that?

Education can serve as a gateway to work, but at a more fundamental level, an education is about more than finding a job or skills training. Education is about disciplining the mind with wisdom.

A Christian education prepares students to become wise and loving servants of Christ rather than just capable or effective workers. Wise and loving servants of Christ know how to live well to the glory of God; they know how to live a good Christian life.

Learning for Wisdom helps you slow down and think through the meaning of a good education. It also compares Christian thinking and learning with the great traditions of the world like those of Socrates, Aristotle, Confucius, and the Buddhist wisdom tradition.
