Classical Christian Homeschool Reading List for Parents

I have been reading Douglas Wilson over the last week or so, and found a list in the back of Classical Education and the Homeschool. It is a list of recommended literature that should be included in every Classical Christian curriculum. The list is divided into sections: Ancient Texts, Early Christian and Medieval Texts, Modern Texts, On Education, On Literature and Reading, On Logic, On Rhetoric and On Worldview Thinking. I have always loved books but I have to admit, the list is intimidating. Daunting, even. However, I have decided to give it a try. After all, how can I teach it if I've never really studied it. And so I embark on a classical book study.
Some of the lovely women that I have the joy of sharing homeschooling with will be joining me on this adventure.
We will choose a book from the list, read/study it, and share our observations and thoughts. I hope to share all of these book studies on this blog.
Our first selection comes from the Early Christian and Medieval Texts: Confessions by Augustine.
