The philosophical, literary, scientific, and theological heritage of the Christian West is a rich one. It is our intention to make our students very familiar with it. We do this for two reasons: First, in order to know where one should go in the future, it is imperative that one understands where he has been. We must have context. The content of our students’ study at MHA is designed to equip them to know, understand and critically evaluate their heritage that forms the foundation for nearly everything they see around them. Second, we believe that because Christianity has seen its deepest roots in the West, its cultural “artifacts” are the most deeply Christian (with important counter-examples noted) and, therefore, most lovely. Since the Scripture commands us to meditate on these things, we do so without apology.
