An excellent liberal arts education holds purpose-giving and society-shaping power. In The Liberal Arts: A Student's Guide, Gene C. Fant Jr. looks at liberal learning through a gospel-oriented lens, arguing that the great thinkers of history were all interacting in some way with how God reveals himself through the realm of knowledge. Fant calls for embracing the best of that past while freshly applying it to today's world, preparing students for a lifetime of connecting their education to the work God has for them.


Fant lays out a vision of education that carefully prepares students to pursue their calling. He outlines the history of liberal arts, responses to its criticisms, and the unselfishness that it fosters. In our global culture, filled with new opportunities for living out the gospel, the liberal arts offer students the foundation they need: a framework based on a belief in transcendence and absolute truth. With that kind of preparation, they can become spiritually and intellectually empathetic people who are equipped to serve God, the church, and their society. Part of the Reclaiming the Christian Intellectual Tradition series.

An excellent liberal arts education holds purpose-giving and society-shaping power. But how do we tap into that power and make the most of liberal learning for the glory of God?


Professor Gene Fant teaches how to maximize a liberal arts education by outlining its history, criticisms, purposes, and benefits. Ultimately, he shows that liberal learning equips us to become spiritually and intellectually empathetic people who are passionate about serving God, the church, and the world.
