What is a Liberal Arts Education?

This fascinating interview with Philip Ryken and Jeffrey Davis by Ken Myers of Mars Hill Audio addresses the importance of a liberal arts education in the 21st century.

It’s about 26 minutes long and definitely worth a listen if you’ve ever wondered what Classical Christian education is all about.

I hope you’ll take a listen.



As you listen, enjoy contemplating this memorable scene from Book VI in the Iliad.
