Vocal Point-Dr. Peter Lillback

Topic: The Bible and Education (particularly in colonial America)

The Bible in one way or other was the chief textbook for colonial America, and not just in New England. The Puritans are little remembered today for their contributions to our republic, e.g., to constitutionalism and education (like Harvard, Yale, and Dartmouth). At one time, America was one of the best educated nations in the world. Dr. Peter Lillback, founder/president of Providence Forum, co-wrote a book with Jerry Newcombe that became a best-seller, George Washington’s Sacred Fire. Dr. Peter Lillback joins Jerry Newcombe for another in the series of Lillback-Newcombe Conversations on America’s Judeo-Christian roots. This particular episode focuses on the Bible and colonial education. www.providenceforum.org
