News & Publications

On August 1, 2020, we began our 32nd year of publishing THE PAIDEIA LETTER, the only independent publication of its kind reaching Christian educators from K-12 schools through college/university and seminary throughout the world.  The purpose of our publication is to inform, instruct, and even inspire Christian educators at every level of our vocation.


We publish multiple issues quarterly (Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring) and SPECIAL EDITIONs periodically--so far, since August 1, Summer and Fall quarterlies, plus another eight SPECIAL EDITION issues.  Our subscription year runs through July 31, 2021, and all new subscribers will receive back issues.

  • PAIDEIA, Inc. is pleased to announce that, as a result of our successful “ZOOMFEST” series in May and June 2020, we have entered into a partnership with PRIVATE SCHOOL COLLOQUIUM intending to offer peer-to-peer conversations as “Timely Topics Dialogues.”  This new service, headed by Bobby Welch, Nikole Blanchard, and D. Bruce Lockerbie continues our scheduled exchange among independent school educators on a fee-based membership basis.  Our early efforts aimed at assembling North American schools, but on October 1, we launched an International version with schools and associations representing 20 countries.


     The last North American program was scheduled for Thursday, October 8. The Timely Topic for       that occasion addressed “The Toll on Teachers and Avoiding Early Burn-Out.”  For more                     information, request a copy of Dialogue, the PRIVATE SCHOOL COLLOQUIUM publication; or         link to the web site at www.pscolloquium.com.

  • The 2016 revision of From Candy Sales to Committed Donors: A Guide to Financing Christian Schools is complete with new data, new illustrations and photographs, and new commentary by more than a dozen Christian school leaders.  Originally published in 1996, the new version of From Candy Sales to Committed Donors is available in either of two formats: pdf version (to be copied once by the purchaser) or binder-bound version.  The pdf version costs $45.00 and the binder-bound version costs $55.00, payable either by check or by linking to 123 Signup.

  • In 1952, Dr. Frank E. Gaebelein, founding headmaster of The Stony Brook School, delivered lectures at both Dallas Theological Seminary and Denver Seminary.  From these lectures developed his benchmark book The Pattern of God’s Truth: Problems of Integration in Christian Education, first published in 1954 by Oxford University Press.  Since then this remarkable book has never been out of print.  It continues to inform and challenge teachers in Christian schools, colleges/universities, and seminaries.


  • Dr. Lockerbie is available to address the board, administration, faculty, and staff of your school after they have read or re-read The Pattern of God's Truth.  For information, contact dbl@paideia-inc.com.
