Critique of Modern Education

Rushdoony helped launch the revolution in Christian education, and these four lectures feature some of the classic themes in his educational philosophy. The state, acting as savior, utilizes education as a means of creating a new humanity-one that is anti-God, anti-biblical, and humanistic. Only a thoroughly Christian education can reverse the push towards the City of Man, and create a people made ready for the City of God.

Rev. R.J. Rushdoony (1916–2001), was a leading theologian, church/state expert, and author of numerous works on the application of Biblical law to society. He started the Chalcedon Foundation in 1965. His Institutes of Biblical Law (1973) began the contemporary theonomy movement which posits the validity of Biblical law as God’s standard of obedience for all. He therefore saw God’s law as the basis of the modern Christian response to the cultural decline, one he attributed to the church’s false view of God’s law being opposed to His grace. This broad Christian response he described as “Christian Reconstruction.” He is credited with igniting the modern Christian school and homeschooling movements in the mid to late 20th century. He also traveled extensively lecturing and serving as an expert witness in numerous court cases regarding religious liberty. Many ministry and educational efforts that continue today, took their philosophical and Biblical roots from his lectures and books.
