What is a Classical Liberal Arts Education? Why is it so important for the development of a person?
Fr. Juan R. Vélez answers these and more questions you might have about University Education in the 21st century. This book is aimed for parents, prospective University students, and educators. It will help you discern why adding Liberal Arts electives to your education will help it form it better, and help the student learn to reason, and not just learn.
He also explains how many Universities have changed the true meaning of Liberal Arts, and the subjects, and gives advise on how to choose College Campus, Subjects, and Teachers.
A wonderful book that every parent should also read way before your children are College bound. A Liberal Arts education can start earlier in life, even from home.
Both St. John Henry Newman and Pope Benedict XVI understood the way of beauty that leads to God.
In both Benedict and Newman we have models of kindness, a kindness rooted in commitment to truth, to reality. Secure in the knowledge that they were loved by God and in the truth that had set them free, they were at liberty to love others.
As “co-workers in the truth,” Newman and Benedict teach us that only from within the setting of God's truth can “heart speak unto heart.”
"What earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred and great for us too."
