Teaching Beauty: A Vision for Music & Art in Christian Education
Like all of the best books, there is a bit of a story behind Teaching Beauty. For what it is worth, these chapters were delivered live in March of 2010 – a few have a lively, chatty tone, while a few were more formal academic papers, complete with great footnotes – at a small conference hosted by the Veritas Academy, a classical Christian school in Lancaster PA.
The Ritualized Revelation of the Messianic Age
Turley begins by surveying the history of the interface between ritual studies and Pauline scholarship, identifying the scholarly gaps in both method and conclusions and a ritual theory adequate to address such gaps.
Awakening Wonder: A Classical Guide to Truth, Goodness, and Beauty
In his masterful work The Abolition of Man, C.S. Lewis observed how modern education was changing our conception of what it means to be human.

Classical vs. Modern Education: A Vision from C.S. Lewis
In this masterful work, C.S. Lewis observes how modern education is in fact changing our conception of what it means to be human. By sequestering the student from the objective values that formed the basis for virtue formation, modern educational practices perpetuate a mechanistic vision of the world comprised of scientifically inspired control over nature and, as a necessary consequence, humans. The Abolition of Man is C.S. Lewis’ invitation to rediscover the doctrine of objective values and, in so doing, rediscover what it means to be truly human.
