Cruciform Education

Category: Education :: Permalink

Here’s a new essay by Peter Leithart on “Cruciform Education.” A lot of it is quotable, but I’ll simply give you this snippet:

All philosophy originates in wonder at the strangeness of the world, but the Christian philosopher finds the world infinitely stranger than Parmenides or Plato could have dreamed. For Christian philosophy, the central questions must be, “What kind of world do we live in if everything hinges on a crucifixion one spring afternoon in first-century Palestine?” and “What kind of world is it if ultimate reality reveals itself as Gift, as incarnate and self-sacrificing Love?”
