Appendix II is an excellent recap of what the Bible says about Christian Education. If a parent is wanting a clearly laid out summary of what the Bible says about the training and education of children, these 9 pages are it. So, I highly recommend this book to anyone who really wants to know what the Bible says about the parents’ role in educating their children and some practical steps/tips how to educate your children Biblically.
Because of my bias, I'm not going to compare this book against books by other authors. What I will do this is compare it to Israel's other books. It's his best to date.
It covers two major areas. The first half makes a case for educating from a Biblical Worldview. The second half takes ten major academic areas and discusses specifics of how a Biblical Worldview applies to each area.
It is an update to and replacement for his 2000 book Homeschooling from a Biblical Worldview. When he wrote the 2000 book, he was a young man, newly married and a new father. Now he's spent almost two more decades living out these principles (with his wife, Brook) as he raises and trains his children. So his perspectives and insights are more developed and experiential.
At 238 pages, counting appendices, this book is an easy read. That's for better and for worse. If one must choose between leaving readers wanting more and leaving readers wanting less, it's certainly better to leave readers wanting more. The first half felt just right. I would love to see what Israel would do with turning the second half into a book of its own, fleshing out each academic area in greater detail.
The first half is great for new parents, or parents working through alternative educational options. The second half is excellent for new parents and long-time homeschoolers alike.
I was the kid who went to school and came home to play school. I was the kid who went to college so that I could teach school. I got my Master's degree to be a school administrator. I was a high school English teacher for 15 years. I am now a homeschool mom of four as well as a cover school and co-op administrator. I think you get it. I love school! I love to learn! I love to see other people learn!
This book gave me a new perspective on God's ultimate purpose for education. This book has given me a new goal and purpose in the schooling of my children. Even as a Christian educator for years, this book made me realize that I never truly looked to the Bible to considered what God's purpose is for education and ultimately what my purpose in educating my children should be.
It deserves more than 5 stars!! I am recommending this to ALL of my fellow homeschooling parents and purchasing several as gifts.
