Teaching a Providential View of History

Teaching a Providential View of History

When teaching a providential view of history, our view of history isn’t that there is a “Christian history” and then “secular history.” All of history is God’s story, it’s His Story. His working with people, places, and events to bring about his Kingdom, rule, and reign.

The main purpose of history is story of God.

Are we teaching the story of man or are we teaching the story of God? What has God done and what is God doing?

This is a Providential View of History.

What is the Big Picture of History?

Teaching a Providential View of History

In every era we need to go back and look at what God was doing. In every era of history God is at work. There’s never been a time when God hasn’t been at work.

This is why we focus on missionary work, the work of the church, etc. But, even in so-called secular history we see God working as the hand of Providence.

The decision to homeschool is difficult. There is so much to learn, and there are often radical changes that take place in your family. Unfortunately, not everyone will be supportive.

Well-meaning friends and relatives may believe you are going to “ruin your child.” How can you make sure that you have laid a good foundation for your child’s future? How can you respectfully defend your choice to those who disagree with you?

Many studies indicate that Christian youth are leaving the Church, and anti-Christian education has been linked as a major factor in this equation. The Bible is full of instructions on how God desires His children to be educated. 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? Order your copy here.

From Israel Wayne, Christian Worldview

Quote:

Around the 1950s the seeds of Postmodernism began to grow. By the 1960s, America was witnessing a full-scale cultural revolution. In contrast to Modernism, its sociological step-child, Postmodernism is decentralized, relativistic, experiential, pluralistic and in many ways irrational. Again, it took 20 years, but soon enough Postmodernism found a foothold in many churches.

Today we find ourselves in a near civil war within the church. Postmodern Emergents are on one side facing off against died-in-the-wool traditional, institutional Fundamentalists on the other. The questions range from doctrine to style, with cultural presuppositions under-girding many of the arguments on both sides.

Culturally, I believe that September 11, 2001 has provided a sociological turning point into a new era. It has ushered in, in my opinion, the beginning of post-Postmodernism.

Schoolhouse Rocked Interview with Garritt and Yvette Hampton

Schoolhouse Rocked | The Homeschool Revolution | Interview with the Hamptons & Israel Wayne

Join Israel Wayne as he interviews the Hamptons about their new film, Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution.

Support the Film.


There’s a revolution transforming American education, more than 2 million students strong, and it’s not happening in the classroom.

Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution is feature-length documentary, currently in post-production and coming to a theater near you. This timely film is intended to encourage and equip homeschool families to start strong and finish well. The movie follows host, Yvette Hampton as she travels the country with her family. She talks with education experts, curriculum developers, college and university faculty and administrators, and homeschooling families at every stage in the process.  From kindergarten to college graduation and beyond. As viewers follow Yvette on this journey and share in her challenges and victories as a homeschool mom, they will gather the necessary resources and encouragement to homeschool their own children with excellence.

PRO-HOMESCHOOLING MOVIE

Schoolhouse Rocked is not an anti-public school movie. It is not an anti-government, anti-vaccination, anti-classroom, anti-NEA, or anti-Department of Education movie. Schoolhouse Rocked is a PRO-HOMESCHOOLING MOVIE. We believe that the slow, steady decline of the public schools, coupled with a rising desire among parents to take control of their children’s education and training has lead to the explosive growth of the homeschool movement – The Homeschool RevolutionSchoolhouse Rocked seeks to be a leading force in the next wave of that revolution.

You’ve asked for a more specific list with recommendations that are age-based and appropriate. We really enjoy the missionary biographies from YWAM publishers. That’s not necessarily classical literature, but our kids enjoy it, too. We had one son finish all 48 books in the series!

When we think of literature, we tend to think of those great books. Some books are also great for read-alouds.

You do need to be mindful that not everything that’s considered “classic” is something you should hand to your children unfiltered. There’s a lot of teaching that needs to happen. The Scriptures are our plumbline for what’s good.

From his new book, “Education, Does God Have an Opinion”…

Review from Teach Them Diligently,
“The biblical worldview should be applied to all aspects of education. This is why Wayne spends the second part of the book applying the biblical philosophy of education to the curricula and subjects that children ought to study. He has a chapter devoted to each of the following: logic, math, science, philosophy and apologetics, social studies, art, language arts, literature, history, and government.”
