The History of the Church Is the Center of World History

“In the providence of God, the kingdom of God was preached in the Greco-Roman world, and Christianity spread, for the most part, north and west. The direction of this movement has changed recently but only in the last century or so. Now the kingdom of God is not to be identified with Western culture, but we must say at the same time that the stories of each are so intertwined that we cannot hope to understand the course of one with knowing the history of the other. So to Christian educators Constantine and Charlesmagne will always be more significant than the Ming Dynasty. The course of history was established by a sovereign God, and we teach this history to our children as a form of submission to Him” (The Case for Classical Christian Education, pp. 136-137).
