Reclaiming Augustine for Modern Christian Education

From: Volume 7NS, Issue 1: Spring 2003 Pages 87-98

Abstract

The influence of Augustine on the theology of all of the mainstreams of the Western church is clear. Roman Catholics, Lutherans, Reformed, and Anglicans have all been influenced by his theology. But Augustine was also the first to think systematically about the integration of theology with educational practice and theory. An overview of Augustine's life provides the backdrop for an analysis of his thinking regarding education and the church.
