New wineskins: Subverting the 'sacred story' of schooling.

Blomberg, Douglas Gordon. “New Wineskins: Subverting the ‘Sacred Story’ of Schooling.” In Christian Higher Education in the Global Context: Implications for Curriculum, Pedagogy, and Administration, pp. 119-214. Ed. N. Lantinga. Sioux Center, IA: Dordt Press, 2008.

If Christian elementary and secondary schools are better to reflect the primacy of experiential knowing as this typifies a biblical wisdom perspective, institutions of higher education need to change their practices. The way in which teachers are taught is one of the most significant influences on the way in which teachers teach. It is relatively futile to pour the new wine of Christian education (as education for discipleship) within the old wineskin of theory into practice (education for the disciplines).
