Abstract

Cedarville's English Department is launching a new journal called Resuscitating Paideia: Reading Literature for Wisdom. In this journal we will publish peer-reviewed articles that used biblically based wisdom as a lens through which to read particular texts. For this session, I would discuss the larger project of the journal--including normative readings of great books--and how this journal can benefit home educators who long to answer "Why are we reading this?" on behalf of specific texts. Dr. Leland Ryken, Dr. David Urban, and Dr. Lou Markos have written articles on Milton, Tolstoy, and Shakespeare for our first issue. This journal will be available online for free, and we're launching it in April.
