This course gives you an understanding of our western culture by examining what the Bible teaches concerning the two visions of culture that build two distinct cities. On the one hand, there is the Christian view of society's institutions (family, government, church) that builds the city of God. On the other hand, there is the anti-Christian view of those institutions that builds the city of man. In this course we establish the biblical teaching on the two cultures and cities. We then observe a Christian apologist in action on these issues as we study Augustine's defense of the Christian moral vision in his City of God over against the competing secular vision represented in Plato's Republic and other period writings.

I took this series as part of Knox Seminary Classics program and it was one of the few classes that has greatly impacted my life. I am very thankful for the classics courses there and for Dr. Gage's teachings. I would only recommend that the video lecture's be uploaded as well and then it will get five stars. I recommend anyone to take the Classics online track at Knox.
Very informative. Everyone should listen to these classes. Dr. Gage does a superb job of not only guiding the student through the great books of the western world but also points the student back to Jesus. Consider taking these classes for credit at Knox Theological Seminary. You will not be disappointed.
