Mystie and I are pleased to welcome Eric Hall as our guest today. Eric is a classical scholar and teacher who is local to Brandy. That’s right! She gets to know him in real life. Eric has studied at The Master’s College, the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and Clemson University. When he’s not reading Thomas Aquinas, Eric enjoys mountaineering and rock climbing.
Today’s episode is our attempt to balance two ideas. On the one hand, we have grace – this beautiful free gift of God. On the other hand, we have virtue, and our pursuit of it. Shouldn’t virtue come to us directly from God? And if so, why would Christian classical education say that virtue is the goal of education? Eric is kind enough to help us sort these questions out….
