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 and her husband Ranald Macaulay established and led the L'Abri branch in England for several years. She is also the author of For the Family's Sake and contributed to Books Children Love and When Children Love to Learn.
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.
