Get Wisdom! Making Christian Heroes of Ordinary People
The text version of our basic Applied-Biblical Faith, Thinking-Biblically Training Program
Take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ!
With a truly Biblical philosophy exercised by faith, there should exist no significant gap between theory and successful Christian living, between the Spirit of God and His fruit. A now almost forgotten body of Biblical wisdom laid the foundations for America’s great Christian institutions. Its scholarship is a powerful instrument toward replacing secularism with a Biblical view and practice in every area of life.
Issues concerning psychology, education, business, management, law, family, church and civil government, the natural sciences, the arts — all human endeavors — are legitimate and necessary Christian concerns. For in these lie the influential institutions that will either help prepare the soil of men’s hearts for the Gospel or harden it.
Get Wisdom! offers a Biblical method for taking all of life’s concerns captive to the obedience of Christ. Ron Kirk’s book provides the rigorous theoretical and practical foundation needed to make Christian education thoroughly Biblical. Get Wisdom! leaves no gap between theory and practice, except what faith requires.
Get Wisdom! emphasizes the centrality of Christ and applied faith in learning and doing, and in spiritual and practical character development. It prepares the student for godly relationships of all kinds. The student learns to handle the material resources of life in Biblical terms for God’s glory. Christian liberty is central. Internal freedom from sin and external liberty are necessary to obey God’s calling on one’s life, individually and in community with others.
Get Wisdom! identifies a method of scholarship and education consistent with Biblical goals for the mature Christian. Applying these concise principles consistently will take students from rudimentary accomplishment to mastery in every conceivable life subject.
Ron has applied the content of Get Wisdom! for over forty years in varied educational settings. He has trained many classroom teachers, home school parents, and adult learners of every kind to apply these principles successfully in their educational and life domains. Many young people educated in the Get Wisdom! program have established Christian families, demonstrating that this instruction produces adults of elevated character and accomplishment.
