Home Educating in Biblical Truth

Posted By on April 5, 2011

Though this  is a review from Lee Ann Garfias  of the concerning book “Telling God’s Story: A Parents’ Guide to Teaching the Bible” by Peter Enns, it is also an excellent, detailed article on the vital importance of teaching the Bible to our children from the very beginning.

The most important subject in home education is Bible.  Training our children in God’s Word is the foundation to continuing our faith (Deut. 6:4ff, Matt. 22:37ff).  In this paper I will discuss at some length my perspective on teaching the Bible at home, then I will describe a biblical philosophy of teaching young children God’s Word, and finally I will show how this pertains to Peter Enns’s latest book on Bible education.

  1. Thank you for your kind words and for linking my paper. It is my prayer, and that of my husband who greatly helped me through it, that these words may encourage some mother to continue biblically training her children in truth.

    I have been reading your site for some time. Thank you for your own encouragement in truth!
