Philosophy and Education
An Introduction in Christian Perspective, 4th Edition
by George R. Knight
$ 24.99

George Knight’s Philosophy and Education: An Introduction in Christian Perspective has been a classic in its field for more than a quarter of a century. New features of this revised and updated fourth edition make it of even greater usefulness in the educational philosophy classrooms of a new century. These include:

  • An all-new chapter on the Christian teacher in the public school setting
  • “Points to Ponder” study questions at the end of each chapter
  • New material addressing the latest relevant issues, including the rise of the home school movement, and the relation of the Intelligent Design debate to Christian educational philosophy
  • A fresh, new text design, including call-out highlights of major themes
  • An updated bibliography and references
  • George Knight has taught at Andrews University for many years. He has served as a pastor, elementary and secondary teacher, school principal and a professor of educational foundations and church history. He holds two masters degrees in theology and Christian philosophy and a doctorate in the philosophy of education.

    Praise for previous editions of Philosophy and Education:

    “Knight’s excellent survey of the relation of education and philosophy deserves serious consideration as a textbook in educational philosophy.” —Christianity Today

    Philosophy and Education is characterized by its clear and simple writing style, its orderly and logical presentation, and, above all, by the honesty, modesty, and tentativeness of its claims.” —Religious Education

    Philosophy and Education is an excellent source concerning the relationship of philosophy and education. George R. Knight covers the spectrum in philosophy relevant to education. [He] shows how Christian education can be thoroughly Christian instead of just a ‘secular pill with a Christian coating.’” —Christian Educators Journal
