Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Reaping What We've Sown

Just the other day I was musing over the loss of biblical literacy among scholars. Now I see that the New York Times and every other major news agency worldwide has revealed their own biblical illiteracy by attributing a verse from Hebrews to the poet Yeats.

Check this out from Eric Metaxas via Fox News (yes, he's the one that wrote Bonhoeffer).

How far we we've come from the days when a British officer cabled from Dunkirk the three words "But if not..."  and they bore the full meaning of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego's declaration to Nebuchadnezzar, before being throne into the furnace:
“O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king.  But if not, be it known to you, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up.”
