The Bible is not only the foundation for Christianity, but it is the unique tome through which much of Western civilization, literature, history and science have been influenced. Let Ruth Beechick, well-respected author of many practical homeschooling books, provide an educational template with the Bible as the center and reason for studying. She moves through specific subjects with suggestions for teaching, along with reading, study, thinking and writing skills...always with the Bible first in mind. This book is full of the foundational guidance that will benefit new or experienced homeschoolers, and provides solid practical support as well as an encouragement to return to a wiser, more Biblically centered model of education. 214 pages with index, softcover.
An immensely respected leader in today’s homeschool movement, Dr. Ruth Beechick encourages families to center all aspects of their children’s learning on God’s Word in A Biblical Home Education.Beechick begins by showing how the subjects of worldview, science, and history have been pulled apart from the Bible and how they can be sensibly reconnected. In the author’s words, “Since the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, that anti-God teaching can lead only to foolishness.”Also included are chapters on thinking, reading, writing and study skills, learning methods, curriculum tips, and extensive teaching helps.
