    We decided back in September of 2015 to homeschool. I was already leaning heavily towards homeschooling when a friend at PWOC gave me a copy of A Biblical Home Education: Building Your Homeschool on the Foundation of God's Word by Dr. Ruth Beechick. Dr. Beechick's idea of incorporating the Bible in to every subject really got me. In the book Beechick discusses how separated modern schooling is from the Bible and why we should care about it.

I was already leaning heavily towards homeschooling when a friend at PWOC gave me a copy of A Biblical Home Education: Building Your Homeschool on the Foundation of God's Word by Dr. Ruth Beechick. Dr. Beechick's idea of incorporating the Bible in to every subject really got me. In the book Beechick discusses how separated modern schooling is from the Bible and why we should care about it. She states that in order to truly fear the Lord we first have to know him. When I read that it was like a light bulb went off in my mind! I began to think of homeschooling not as an alternative to public schooling, meaning that they are basically equal. Instead Beechick's book made me realize that by choosing to homeschool I could create an incredible learning environment tailored to each child's needs, struggles, and strength. This book taught me that the goal of homeschooling isn't to recreate a public school at home but rather to fill in all things your family needs and remove the things that it doesn't. Beechick showed me that homeschooling biblically means praying and following God's leading for your children rather than a school districts general plan. Long story short, it took me over a year to read A Biblical Home Education because I was taking such incredibly detailed notes in the margins and then when space ran out there in a separate journal. I have since re-read this book four times. Obviously I give this book an uproarious 5 star rating. If I had higher than a 5 star I would give it that. In fact I may make up a higher rating just for this books and the few others than come close to it. If you are a Christian homeschooler, I cannot recommend this book highly enough!

    Some good tips if you want to homeschool and you are a Christian... but she only has ONE perspective, and only HER perspective is right. And why would anyone want to teach children anything about other interpretations, instead of the RIGHT one (which is, of course, hers)? A parent's whole goal in parenting is to get their child to "accept Jesus", which happens around 5 years old in a Christian home (yes, she actually said that! As if it were a developmental step!). Anyway, get it from the librar Some good tips if you want to homeschool and you are a Christian... but she only has ONE perspective, and only HER perspective is right.

    I was hoping to get a lot out of this book, since I use The Golden Children's Bible as the basis for creating unit studies in our Catholic homeschool. I knew the author had a fundamentalist Protestant world view, because I had read one of her other books. I had gotten a lot out of it in spite of that. This one did not measure up. The boxed-in, fundamentalist mindset influences every page. I do not recommend it for anyone who is not a fundamentalist Protestant.

    Pretty good with lots of ideas for using the Bible as basis and primary text for homeschool. I will check it out again when the kids get a bit older.

    Very great overview on how you could approach different subjects. Does not go into much detail; is not a curriculum, but gives you some good ideas.

    I remember loving this book. I'd have to read it again, in all honesty, but Ruth Beechick is a wonderful teacher. I remember loving this book. I'd have to read it again, in all honesty, but Ruth Beechick is a wonderful teacher.

    If you have ever desired to make the Bible the spine of your homeschool, look no further. Full of practical how to ideas, this book is the perfect hand book for how to do just that. From English to history, the author shows you how to simply teach from God’s word.

    I am glad a read this book because it gives me familiar concepts and language to use to talk with Emily about what we are going to do for homeschool. We will use this book as a resource for years to come to help continue our conversation about how and what to use during homeschool. Ms. Beechick says some pretty bold things. Most I agree with but do not dismiss this book just because you do not agree with everything she says.

    Notes: keeping homeschool simple with the bible as your main foundation emphasis on skills not subjects -- leans toward our unschooling ways some odd ideas I don't agree with bibliography references are mostly to her own books (??) still very helpful though Notes: keeping homeschool simple with the bible as your main foundation emphasis on skills not subjects -- leans toward our unschooling ways some odd ideas I don't agree with bibliography references are mostly to her own books (??) still very helpful though

    Even as a mostly conservative Christian, I found the tone of this book very off-putting.
