Summary

When it comes to education, R.C. Sproul Jr. doesn’t hesitate in dealing with the real issues. Who should teach our children? What should they be taught? What teaching methods should be employed? In this powerful primer on child training, R.C. cuts through the haze surrounding the educational debate by offering a biblical approach that is elegantly simple without being simplistic. Not everyone will love this book. Christians who embrace an education methodology of neutrality will either squirm with discomfort or convert. R.C. clearly and emphatically makes the case for parents as God’s chosen teachers. He writes with verve, with heart, with transparency, and with humility. He systematically goes through all of the typical objections raised against home schooling and provides meaningful and definitive answers. On the other hand, parents who, with humility before the Lord, are seeking His best for their families will be deeply touched and motivated by this simple, biblical message of covenantal home education.

Testimonials

Excellent

Mrs. Brenda MacMenamin

This is an easy read and an excellent overview of the Biblical Philosophy of Education. It is refreshingly written to set us free from the web of "progressive education" and lays a firm foundation to renew our mind as to the Promises the Lord has for us and how to obtain those promises for our families.

Wonderful Book

Chrissy

I finished this book not too long ago. Now I'm convinced not only to homeschool for a longer time but also have a different perspective on it! This book points us to God, His Word, and WHY we would want to homeschool-our children are a blessing from God to be raised by us parents! I want to raise my children "in the fear and admonition of the Lord" and bring up children to passionately love God! Thank you R.C. JR! God bless you, your family and your ministry. I pray for a revival from God!

It's fear mongering and possibly prooftexting

Ben Richardson

I purchased the book a week ago. Sproul Jr. has an interesting collection of words and phrases, for example, war, government-run schools, government schoolers, fools, educated by the state, the State School Empire's worldview, State schools, fraud and scam....and I'm only to page 37. Be careful of being guilted into home schooling. Be cautious of conservative fear words used to manipulate your choices for education. That's what these choice words and phrase can do. I read on....
