About the Author
Susan Schaeffer Macaulay grew up in Switzerland at L'Abri Fellowship, which was founded by her parents Francis and Edith Schaeffer. She is also the author of the award-winning How to Be Your Own Selfish Pig and Something Beautiful from God.
Mary Woods began her career in Washington, DC, where she performed at Ford's Theater, the Folger Theater, Round House, and Washington Stage Guild. She spent several seasons at New Playwrights' Theater developing new American plays. She is a veteran narrator of Talking Books for the Library of Congress, and received the Alexander Scourby Narrator of the Year Award for fiction in 1996. Formerly a radio news director, she now hosts a daily local affairs interview program on Catholic Radio, for the Archdiocese of Santa Fe. She lives in Albuquerque, where she continues to act on stage and in film. She received her BA at the Catholic University of America in Fine Arts and Drama.--This text refers to the MP3 CD edition.
Fifteen years ago--in the world of education, a millennium--Macaulay wrote her ideological treatise on schooling, designed to assist parents and teachers in creating education that is both enriching and joyous. She states in her preface that the book embraces the Christian worldview as it applies the ideas and methods of educator Charlotte Mason to home-schooling, public education and family life. Mary Woods's crisp, cheerful reading aims to convince and encourage listeners. However, because of Macaulay's lifelong affiliation with the L'Abri Christian Fellowship in Switzerland and England, the underlying religious message is strong. Despite the acknowledged datedness of many of the books and materials suggested for use, and the underlying political tract, this recording will interest the Christian home-school market. T.B.
