This new book introduces readers to a paradigm for understanding classical education that transcends the familiar three-stage pattern of grammar, logic, and rhetoric. Instead, this book describes the liberal arts as a central part of a larger and more robust paradigm of classical education that should consist of piety, gymnastic, music, liberal arts, philosophy, and theology. The book also recovers the means by which classical educators developed more than just intellectual virtue (by means of the seven liberal arts) but holistically cultivated the mind, body, will, and affections.

A must-read for educators wanting to take a second big step toward recovering the tradition of classical education.

''The foundational distinction between traditional education and modern education is that the ancients believed that education was fundamentally about shaping loves.''

'' Just look at this book's table of contents to see how much is included in this. It's more than the old 'seven liberal arts,' but it builds on them. It is an education of the whole person, not just the calculating intellect. But it is not less 'intellectual' for that, but more so. . . . This little book is a description of that educational program. It's precious because children are precious.''

-from the foreword by Peter Kreeft, Boston College
