Education for Magnanimity

By Ron Kirk

It is uniquely adapted for either Christian professional or home schoolers in that it can be used with any Christian curriculum, by equipping the teacher with a philosophical command over the subject.

Today’s Christian graduate students, for many disciplines, have little choice other than to study at the modern-day equivalent of the University of Babylon. For those graduate students who want to pursue a career in academia, there is the additional difficulty of working in colleges and universities with intellectuals who believe the God of the Bible is, at best, an irrelevancy and, at worst, a stultifying influence on the progress of humanity.
