Becoming Classically Christian:
Learning from Plato, Paul, and Dostoevsky

The Academy and the Honors College at Houston Christian University invite you to join us for dinner and a conversation about classical Christian education.

Thursday, November 9, 2023 from 6:00-8:00 p.m.
On the campus of Houston Christian University

In recent years, the growing popularity of classical Christian education has led to confusion about what it means for a school to provide a classical Christian education. The good news is that the authors of the books that form an essential part of classical Christian education have themselves shown us what good, faithful, and transformative education is. Join us for dinner and a conversation with HCU faculty about what three important figures in the history of classical Christian education—the philosopher Plato, the apostle Paul, and the novelist Fyodor Dostoevsky—can teach us about what it means to educate classically and Christianly.
