"One of the key aspects of understanding the basis upon which we build an educational philosophy is the ‘creation/fall/redemption’ framework, explicitly espoused by many in the reformed educational tradition and one which I believe is both thoroughly Biblical and highly relevant to an understanding of the whole educational process. In this framework we see that God created all things good, that this good creation was subject to bondage and decay due to the effects of human sin and that God, in His grace and mercy, is on about the business of redemption – specifically and most pivotally, the redemption of a people saved through the death and resurrection of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, but also the promise of the redemption of the whole creation, partly now and in its fullness at the second advent. This hope infuses and suffuses Christian education which can be passionately truthful about the fallenness of the broken world around us and can yet point to the promises and redemptive plans of a good and gracious triune God."
