“By communing with the manifestation of the splendor of God in all our subject matter, students get a glimpse of the ultimate goal of our Christian cultural pursuits, what theology calls the beatific vision, the vision of the New Jerusalem in Revelation 22, where heaven and earth come together as one, when God floods the cosmos with His incorruptible glory and life-giving radiance. It is just such a glimpse that can transform students into embodiments of that beatific vision for our world today.”
Stephen R. Turley, Awakening Wonder: A Classical Guide to Truth, Goodness & Beauty

“The entire object of true education is to make people not merely do the right things, but enjoy the right things—not merely industrious, but to love industry—not merely learned, but to love knowledge—not merely pure, but to love purity—not merely just, but to hunger and thirst after justice.”
Stephen R. Turley, Awakening Wonder: A Classical Guide to Truth, Goodness & Beauty

“Modern science has therefore rent asunder what the classical imagination brought together: the physical world and the semiotic world, the world of nature and the world of culture, have been split apart from each other, such that what was once considered knowledge—indeed the highest form of knowledge, the contemplation of the True, the Good, and the Beautiful—is now appropriated as no more than private belief or personal preference.”
