"R. C. Sproul Jr. cuts through the haze surrounding the educational debate by offering a biblical approach that is elegantly simple without being simplistic. I recommend this important work to Christian educators on all sides." --Gregg Harris, author of The Christian Home School
"Sproul Jr. conveys both the necessity and the purpose of homeschooling for the Christian family in an amiable and captivating manner, that readers will be startled to discover the foundations of secular education crumbling in their hearts. I highly recommend this book to all who are considering the awesome call of homeschooling, or those who have forgotten why they started." --James McDonald, Homeschooling Today

In this somewhat slim volume (142 pages), R. C. Sproul, Jr. distills from the Bible why Christian parents not only should, but must, homeschool their children. Moreover, drawing primarily from Deuteronomy 6, he draws attention to how God says this is to be done (the methodology); namely, teaching our children continuously through conversation and living. The covenant of Christian parents -- Christian families -- is to raise godly seed, warriors in the spiritual battle between God's seed and Satan, with some key differences between raising boys to be godly men and raising girls to be godly women. The core Christian homeschool curriculum must cover the "three Gs": Who is God? What has God done? What does God require?
Part way through the book, I had a concern about a strong statement the author had made, so I stopped then and there and sent him an e-mail about it and within a few days received an open and gracious response from him that satisfied my concern.
This book contains what some may consider strong spiritual meat. As a homeschooling grandma, this book has helped me; I will probably cite it when I write my own book or books on homeschooling; and moreover, I plan to read most, if not all, of the author's other works and expect to consider the time spent doing so as a wise investment in the ongoing growth in wisdom of my family members, young and old, four generations now living.
