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.
