Come hear renowned author Joseph Pearce reveal the marks of a true education, one which counters the culture of death with eternal life-giving verities. In an age of radical relativism and secular fundamentalism, the very future of education is threatened. Joseph Pearce unmasks the poison of modern education and its anti-Christian agenda, and fortifies students and parents with a vision that is true, good, and beautiful. No registration required.
At the risk of seeming a trifle sensationalist, this ongoing affront to educational standards is nothing short of being a crime against humanity. Let’s not forget that the humanities are thus called because they teach us about our own humanity. A failure to appreciate the humanities must inevitably lead to the dehumanizing of culture and a disastrous loss of the ability to see ourselves truthfully and objectively.
Joseph Pearce is the internationally acclaimed author of many books, which include bestsellers such as The Quest for Shakespeare, Tolkien: Man and Myth, The Unmasking of Oscar Wilde, C. S. Lewis and The Catholic Church, Literary Converts, Wisdom and Innocence: A Life of G.K. Chesterton, Solzhenitsyn: A Soul in Exile and Old Thunder: A Life of Hilaire Belloc. He has hosted two 13-part television series about Shakespeare on EWTN, and has also written and presented documentaries on EWTN on the Catholicism of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
