Editor’s note: In the early months of 2017, Dr. Benjamin Bernier wrote a series of five original essays to demonstrate that Charlotte Mason’s educational philosophy can be characterized as a Christ-centered philosophy of education for Christian discipleship, a unique contribution in the history of Christian and educational thought. Later that year, Charlotte Mason Poetry introduced a podcast. For months we have wanted to bring Dr. Bernier’s landmark essays to our listening audience. At last the wait is over. Greg Rolling has shared his wonderful talent as reader and performer to bring these essays to life. Our plan is to release one episode per day this week. Please join us for the entire series as Dr. Bernier uncovers the essential religious foundation of Charlotte Mason’s educational philosophy.
The full text of the original essay may be found here.
