Arthur Holmes on the Idea of a Christian College
Great quote from Arthur F. Holmes from his classic The Idea of a Christian College:
"College is for education, the liberal arts college for a liberal education, and the Christian college for a Christian education. These are the basics to which we must get back. To sell college primarily on some other basis is to operate under false pretenses; and to start into college for some other reason is to ask for frustrations. We must therefore come to see education as a Christian calling, we must explore what ‘liberal education’ means and how it is affected by the Christian’s task" (p. 6).
