In The Beginning Was The Word, by Vern Sheridan Poythress
It is my desire to begin to form for myself a theory of education and language as it relates to life as a Christian in the 21st century, where language and history is undervalued. Rather than relying on conventional formal education to spoon-feed me a pre-formulated understanding of the world around me and its language and literature, I have chosen to begin exploring the plethora of books written by Christian and non-Christians on a variety of topics from history, to literature, language, education, semantics, culture, and beyond.
