About The Liberal Arts

An excellent liberal arts education holds purpose-giving and society-shaping power. But how do we tap into that power and make the most of liberal learning for the glory of God?

Professor Gene Fant teaches how to maximize a liberal arts education by outlining its history, criticisms, purposes, and benefits. Ultimately, he shows that liberal learning equips us to become spiritually and intellectually empathetic people who are passionate about serving God, the church, and the world.

Gene C. Fant Jr. (PhD, University of Southern Mississippi) serves as provost at Palm Beach Atlantic University. A prolific writer, he holds earned degrees in Renaissance literature, biblical studies, English, anthropology, and education. He and his wife, Lisa, have twin children, Ethan and Emily.

Endorsements

“Attention! The liberal arts are for everyone, especially Christians. They introduce us to all the personal dimensions that encompass our lives from beginning to end. But how is this so since so much of the liberal arts seem foreign to us as Christians? Begin with this book and find the answer. Then live out a rich life of knowledge and appreciation of what makes every life worth living.”
James W. Sire, Author, The Universe Next Door and A Little Primer on Humble Apologetics
