    One thought on “The Philosophy of the Christian Curriculum”

    1. Of all the Rushdoony books I've read so far, this is probably my favorite. I was actually surprised at how much it addressed worldview and the fight between humanism and Christianity. I expected that it would, but it was a lot more about worldview than I had even anticipated. This is definitely a 5 star book, and one I will be revisiting over and over. It brings together a lot of Rushdoony's teachings in new ways I'd never read in any of his other writings. This is not a book simply about school [...]

    2. Excellent. Rushdoony provides an overview of the Christian curriculum, and then spends much of the book discussing how Christians should approach various school subjects like math, writing, science, etc. He ends with a detailed look at the ultimate goals of Christian education, written particularly for those involved in Christian schools.

    3. Que livro espetacular! Rushdoony desmascara com mastreia o humanismo por detrás da educação dos nossos dias. A cosmovisão reformada não será resgatada enquanto não dermos a atenção que nossos pais deram a escolas do pacto, escolas cujos currículos não neguem o Senhor Criador e intérprete de todas as coisas.

    4. This is the most useful and direct of all Rushdoony's works on education. It is comprehensive in covering the philosophy/theology of education as well as how subjects are to be taught. Of all Rushdoony's works on education, this is the one with which most readers should begin. It is accessible, thorough, and can easily be read in small chunks.The book, like nearly everything Rushdoony has ever written, is a collection of essays organized topically. He establishes early on that the purpose of edu [...]

    5. Towards GloryThis was an excellent book, which should be read by churches, Christian schools,school administrators and boards. It will be a challenge to what our presuppositions are when we pick our curriculum. I really enjoyed what he said regarding presuppositions towards language and music specifically. I would of liked him to dialogue on what exactly he was combating when he said that the Christian teacher chief job is instruction, and not regeneration. There was not enough content at that p [...]

    6. AMAZING!! Love the approach and genuine real-life advice for Christian curriculum. It was a great read. Convicting and insightful. Recommended for anyone interested in Christian education.

    7. The book was insightful illustrating the differences between Christianity and Humanism regarding separate subjects taught within the school. However, the theory behind such arguements were a little thin and didn't fully back his claims regarding why we should not teach maths as it currently stands. Rushdoony carefully selects his biblical quotes to prove his ideas but doesn't state that the bible also says that there is knowledge outside the great book. The bible is a book of theology and not a [...]

    8. Great and amazing. Only down-side to Rushdooney was his antagonism towards the institutional Church. This comes out in this book as well. It would've been great to get his insights into Church-based schools/education. But aside from this, a great book on the problems of humanistic and statist education versus a thoroughgoing biblical approach.

    9. Prophetic book with insights that (if heeded) would have placed American Christians in a far different situation than that which we are currently experiencing. May this call to distinctly, Christian education finally be followed.

    10. A more practical application of his earlier works on education, particularly *Intellectual Schizophrenia* and *Messianic Character.* Applies Van Til in an educational context.
