I own several of these books in print, and I highly recommend the organizing book and the Ruth Beechick book. I haven’t read the others, but at these eBook prices, I don’t think you can go wrong!! Please remember prices may change and were accurate at the time of posting.
Homeschooling 101 – $0.99
Faith and Learning – $2.99
Faith and learning, scholarship and piety, Christian tradition and intellectual inquiry, head and hearts: How do these things come together in an informative, enriching, and interdependent way?
The calling of Christian higher education is to reflect the life of Christ and to shine the light of truth. That distinctive mission cannot be forced into an either/or framework but rather a both/and calling. It is a commitment to Jesus Christ himself, who is both fully God and fully human and who for Christian educators is both light and life.
This multi-authored volume, with dynamic contributions from entry-level faculty members to seasoned scholars, explores the question of the Christian faith’s place on the university campus, whether in administrative matters, the broader academic world, or in student life.
Philosophy, Sociology, Science, Arts, Business, Media; Faith and Learning explores how significant Christian thinkers have addressed such topics and their related issues throughout the history of the church. The historical, theological, and biblical framework will help students interact with and engage contemporary challenges to the Christian faith in the various fields of study and inquiry.
Homeschooling Methods – $0.99
“For new and veteran homeschool families alike, this extensive new release from the editors of The Old Schoolhouse TM Magazine serves as “a homeschool convention in a book.” It details today’s most viable education models, helping parents formulate an educational game plan and choose teaching methodologies. There are more than twenty contributors including Christine Field, Jessica Hulcy, Dr. Raymond Moore, and Dr. Ruth Beechick.”
“What should I do next; grade the math test or tackle the laundry? Homeschooling at the Speed of Life gives busy homeschooling mothers a thoughtfully thorough resource for bringing order back to their home. In tune with today’s pace, the book provides basic home-management principles, teaching parents how to de-clutter their homes, develop life skills in their children, tame the paper monster, and keep organized records. Also emphasized are ways to build relationships and use the home as a center for hospitality and outreach. Homeschooling moms will be keeping up with their good work in no time!”
A Biblical Home Education – $2.99
“An immensely respected leader in today’s homeschool movement, Dr. Ruth Beechick encourages families to center all aspects of their children’s learning on God’s Word in A Biblical Home Education.
Beechick begins by showing how the subjects of worldview, science, and history have been pulled apart from the Bible and how they can be sensibly reconnected. In the author’s words, “Since the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, that anti-God teaching can lead only to foolishness.'”
Also included are chapters on thinking, reading, writing and study skills, learning methods, curriculum tips, and extensive teaching helps.
“Often, families will choose homeschooling because they have children who cannot cope or thrive within traditional educational environments due to special physical or emotional needs. Homeschooling the Challenging Child addresses these special education issues, offering potential and current homeschooling families qualified and expert advice. Experienced homeschool mom and author Christine Field will offer hope and direction for those seeking to offer their children the best educational opportunities available.”
