In By Design: Developing a Philosophy of Education Informed By a Christian Worldview, Dr. McCullough offers her notes, lectures and exercise given to students who are preparing to be teachers to help them develop a personal philosophy of education that is informed by their worldview.
A Christian educator's philosophy of education serves as a guide to educational practices and as a tool to evaluate and develop practices that are coherent and consistent with a Christian worldview. In By Design, Dr. MacCullough walks her readers through a disciplined exercise in developing a personal philosophy of education that is informed by their worldview. D. Bruce Lockerbie (Chairman of PAIDEIA, Inc.) says, "Dr. Martha E. MacCullough provides a rare service from a scholar's desk: She offers essentially her notes, lectures, and exercises given to students who are preparing to follow her vocation as teachers. Her course is an introduction to various philosophies of education, and her premise holds that anyone seeking to develop a philosophy of education must first determine one's own perspective on life that results in a distinctive worldview." Phil Basset (Director of Teacher Training for International Schools of China and Adjunct Professor of Education at Cedarville University) says, "Dr. MacCullough has an unusual ability to understand complex philosophies and theories, examine them in the light of her deeply held Christian worldview, and then explain them in clear and understandable ways. In By Design, Dr. MacCullough brings all of her considerable intellectual and pedagogical abilities to bear as she brings intellectual rigor down from the ivory tower and puts it to work."
