Wilson argues that Christians are told to educate their children "in the wisdom and admonition of the Lord" and that necessarily means a Christian education to the exclusion of any other. He demonstrates that all education is inherently religious, and the fallacious arguments of those Christians that would relegate their children's education to pagans.

He then lays out the traditional mode of education that Christian's subscribed to until around the nineteenth century, when newer methods became en vogue. That method is the trivium, otherwise known as classical education. He lays out what the education should involve and why. This is an excellent book and one that all Christian parents should read.
