Developing a Christian Philosophy of Education

From: Volume II, Issue 2: Spring 1982 Pages 33-38

Abstract

This article suggests guidelines in which a Christian philosophy of education can be formed which will be applicable in various types of Christian schools. Following an examination of secular education's search for meaning and critique of the basic flaw in its humanistic approach, this article sets forth that the real aim of education should be to acquire knowledge of truth. To achieve this aim, the basic objective of education should be to make men more Godlike, since only in God can a man's life have real meaning.
