    The Power of the Word of God in Your Child’s Education

    By Zan Tyler

    As you choose curriculum and prepare to teach, review the chapter on developing a biblical worldview.

    • Remember the injunction from Harvard’s 1646 “Rules and Precepts,” to “lay Christ at the bottom, as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning.”

    • Remember the power of the Word of God to work positively and powerfully in your child’s life. Because we have become used to education that cannot consider the Bible, we fail to realize what a powerful tool it is in the education of our children. (This subject on its own could fill many volumes.) In both her colonial days and her early days as a nation, America had extremely high literacy rates. Interestingly enough, the Bible played an important role in education during these time periods. In the children’s book Stories of the Pilgrims, the author made this comment about Edward Winslow, a pilgrim, teaching Squanto, the Indian who taught the Pilgrims to survive in the New World, how to read: “There were no primers or first readers then, but Winslow took down his Bible. It was the book from which he had learned to read; he would teach Squanto from it.”

    Our FREE DVD has more!
