4:00 – The Foundations of a Classical Education
We spoke a few weeks ago with Tim Dilaura, who is helping install a classical education program at St Thomas school in Ann Arbor, MI. He joins us again today with a closer look at the foundations of this style of education and how they held students encounter the good, the true and the beautiful.
4:40 – How Culture Robs us of Happiness
We all want to be happy and live life to the fullest, but the answer isn’t found in the world’s definition of happiness.

Other critics claim that Christ’s work in the New Testament renders the Old Testament irrelevant. We know both these claims are false, but how should we approach Old Testament writings as followers of Christ? Stephen Clark joins us.
