What People are saying about this

From the Publisher

"Wisdom and Eloquence is an indispensable contribution to the literature of classical Christian education."
E. Christian KopffAssociate Director, Honors Program; Director, Center for Western Civilization

"Evans and Littlejohn have written a remarkable treatise on education-a readable, practical, and encouraging discourse that demystifies and clarifies the purpose of a liberal education."
D. Bruce LockerbieChairman, Paideia, Inc., Stony Brook, New York; Author, A Christian Paideia: The Habitual Vision of Greatness

"The authors explore not just the methods but the content of a good Christian education. The book is full of great ideas, but it is also practical, drawing from the authors' years of experience as classical teachers and administrators."
Gene Edward Veith Jr., Provost and Professor of Literature, Patrick Henry College; Director, Cranach Institute, Concordia Theological Seminary

"For followers of Christ, a true education is always concerned with who we are, even more than what we know. Littlejohn and Evans help today's Christians-especially parents-to understand the essence of true education. Wisdom and Eloquence is a book for our times, our churches, and our children. Read, learn, and be inspired."
R. Albert Mohler Jr., President and Joseph Emerson Brown Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
