A 7 Point Elevator Pitch in a Tall Skyscraper

Logo

I want to take a moment of your time to explain why you or someone close to you really ought to consider attending New St. Andrews College this fall. First, we provide a rigorous liberal arts education in the classical Christian tradition. It is important to note that the Christianity is not added to the liberal arts as a condiment supplied for the sake of flavoring. Our commitment to Jesus Christ is essential to every aspect of our mission, including our decision to offer a liberal arts degree. Second, we don't take Federal money. As the morass of statist entanglements continues to destroy higher education in America, making the whole thing a sinkhole the size of Rhode Island, NSA has kept itself free of all such entanglements. We are free to pursue and teach what we believe to be the truth, simply because we believe it to be such. We are not financially beholden to any form of paganism on the Potomac. Given the new despotic climate in our culture, especially with the new regime … [Read more...]

Greyfriars Hall

Greyfriars Logo

If you have thought about training for pastoral ministry, you may want to check out Greyfriars Hall. Greyfriars is a ministerial training program that functions under the oversight of the session of elders at Christ Church. You can read more about the program both here and here. There are openings for the fall. If you are accepted, the tuition is free. You do have to buy your own books, and you still have to feed your wife and children, but there is no tuition. In addition, because of cross-listed courses, when you are done with Greyfriars, you will have about half of the work for New St. Andrews' MA in Theology and Letters completed. … [Read more...]

Eclectic Guitar 2015

Logos Dads Band | 2015 Concert Promo from David Johnson Productions on Vimeo. The Logos Dads' Band is an eclectic collection of musicians associated with Logos School, and some of us even play eclectic guitar. We periodically hold a fund-raiser concert to help raise funds for the music program at Logos School. For some it is just an opportunity to listen to music and donate to a great cause. For others it is more of a cautionary tale -- kids, you need to pay attention in your music classes so that you don't turn out like that. At any rate, we have a wonderful time playing covers from the classic rock era, and our next concert is being held the Thursday night right before the opening of the Grace Agenda. We hope to see you there. … [Read more...]

Some Important NSA News

Lewis Writing

So here is some news that I am kind of whizzed up about, to use the technical phrase for it. After Peter Leithart left for Theopolis in Alabama, New St. Andrews needed to revisit our catalog offerings in our MA program, for the simple reason that Peter had taught a lot of our courses. Now as some of you know, NSA offers an MA in theology and letters, and we have now completed our adjustments to that program. I have accepted the responsibility of directing the MA program next year, and if you click here, and scroll down, you will come to a treasure trove of updated information about our vision for literary theology and theological wordsmithing. We have kept the heart of our program, but we have also made some significant adjustments. The main thing I would like to draw to your attention is the fact that we have placed a line of directed readings through the middle of the MA program, with the result that at the end of two years of study, our grad students will have had the option of … [Read more...]

Intensive Hebrew

This coming May, in conjunction with BibleMesh, New St. Andrews is offering a week-long intensive course in biblical Hebrew for pastors. Further details can be found here. The course will be taught by Dr. Timothy Edwards, just to the right here, whose British accent will not make you learn it any faster, but we guarantee that it will make you think you are. A number of other exciting developments are also percolating at NSA, and we hope to keep you abreast of them all. This is just the first. Stay tuned.   … [Read more...]
