The foundational goal of all education must be character formation. There is no better resource than the Old Testament with its timeless narratives of God’s perfect faithfulness in the face of human frailty, and the repeated exhortations to embody uprightness as we love our neighbors as ourselves. The moral and ethical issues that we confront in the 21st century are refractions of the same dilemmas God’s people have faced for millennia.
