“What a blessing to have this unabridged edition of The Seven Laws of Teaching available! In a day when so many educators (and sadly, even some education reformers) live and die by their methods, it is wonderful to have this wisdom from the nineteenth century, a wisdom that reminds us that we need to understand the underlying principles if we are to employ any methods fruitfully. This edition is a blessing in another regard as well. Christian educators know that principles do not support themselves; they are not suspended in mid-air somehow. All true wisdom is grounded in the nature of God, and it is no different here. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge. This version of The Seven Laws of Teaching restores the theological and Christian foundation for this magnificent house.” – Doug Wilson, author, Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning. John Milton Gregory(1822-1898) was a Baptist minister and educator who was active in many important educational circles on all levels, beginning as a teacher in his local school and moving on to become a college president and also serve in the world of politics.
