Education: Does God have an Opinion?
If God has a definite opinion about the issue of education, wouldn't you desire to find out what it is and how best to implement His wisdom?
Since the beginning of the 20th century, the vast majority of Christians have embraced the idea that it is a proper role and function of the civil government to control and guide the education of children. Most Christians believe God doesn’t care, one way or the other, how our children are schooled or what methods are employed. This book will use Scripture to prove otherwise. What you read in this book will radically challenge your assumptions and preconceived ideas.
- Discover the true purpose of an education and how this affects and influences students
- Explore a truly Biblical philosophy of education and how it compares to traditional schooling
- Learn to apply a Biblical worldview strategically and systematically to core subjects of education
There is almost no topic that is as relevant to the future of Christianity or as controversial as the education of children. Students in school classrooms spend thousands of hours being instructed by people who are not their parents. There is almost no way to calculate what a powerful force this is for influence.
From rules to help students reason to information that will help you be a more effective teacher, this book shows the vital importance of “why” in asking students to learn the “what” and “how” of any subject. The future of your child’s education and, therefore, his or her life is ultimately in your hands as a parent. Open your mind and your heart to God’s Word and His truth. Much is at stake. Ask Him to give you discernment to help you understand how He sees the issue of education.

Merchant Ship review - Elizabeth: Israel Wayne does an excellent job of articulating what a biblical education looks like and dissecting the false belief that education can be neutral. The author does not hesitate to challenge the humanistic educational philosophies of our culture, and he solidly defends his work with Scripture. As Christians, it is important for our children to develop a strong biblical worldview in all areas of life. Therefore, it is critical that parents evaluate how their children are being trained. I would encourage all parents to read Education: Does God have an opinion? to gain a clearer perspective of their God-given role in the education of their children, as well as helpful insight in how to teach their children from a biblical perspective. This is a message that the Church desperately needs. I guarantee you’ll be challenged by this book.
