This set of articles, called “Lost Educational Principles” by Audrey Rindlisbacher is amazing. I highly recommend it, especially if you are in a book club or pursuing an education. When you read these articles, you will learn the following:
- How to distinguish between opinions and principles
- Why principles are so important
- how to distinguish between application of principles and principles
- How to lead a book discussion that gets to principles
- why a core book, or a standard of truth, is so important
- why classics are so important
- how to study the classics, specific study skills and ways to mark a book so that the classics will get “through” you
- how to get a great education by simply reading classics
- that the meaning of words is slowly changing. Two examples: “education” and “happiness.” In the 1828 Webster Dictionary “education” is defined as relating to developing morals. You probably won’t find that in a contemporary dictionary. In the 1828 Dictionary “happiness” is defined as the enjoyment of something good and wholesome, whereas now dictionaries define happiness as pleasure.
I give this product 5 out of 5 stars! If you are a mom who wishes you could go “start over” on your education by reading classics instead of textbooks, this is the place to start. I highly suggest you go over to http://tenboominstitute.com/leaders/ and order this packet. This is a “must-have” for a great, Godly education. Especially if you are involved in a book club, you will want this set of readings.
It will totally open your eyes and make you wonder what principles are involved in all areas of life and what you can do to change your life to live according to these principles.
