We believe what the Bible says in Deuteronomy 6:7, "And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." For many years we have studied from the Bible and other religious sources how to implement this kind of education into our SonLight homeschooling curriculum. We are endeavoring to follow this counsel and teach others what God's Word tells us about true Christian education.
One writer tells us: "Our ideas of education take too narrow and too low a range. There is need of a broader scope, a higher aim. True education means more than the perusal of a certain course of study. It means more than a preparation for the life that now is. It has to do with the whole being, and with the whole period of existence possible to man. It is the harmonious development of the physical, the mental, and the spiritual power. It prepares the student for the joy of wider service in the world to come." (Education 13) The ultimate aim of Christian Education is to restore in man the image of his Creator and bring him back to the perfection in which he was originally created.
