Dr. Dad: Random Thoughts on the Status of Fatherhood in Modern America
"Always a provocative writer," notes Rushdooney, "Gamble's study is to the
point and should be read for instruction and growth in Biblical fatherhood"
(Chalcedon Report, May, 1995, p. 33). Poignant and perceptive, Dr. Gamble
writes as the Puritans of days gone by, except in easily understandable
English. He likens your position, as father and head of your household, to
that of the minister in the church: who loves, nourishes, and protects those
under his care (in 24 succinct chapters).

Ten Steps to Begin Homeschooling
The Catechising of Youth & Christ's Favour to Little Children Displayed
The two sermons noted above were preached in 1713 and speak of foun-
dational biblical teaching of which every family should be aware. A
faithful ministry and faithful parents, who catechize their children daily,
will do more for true Reformation and godliness than just about any other
means to this end.

A Church in the House: A Sermon Concerning Family Religion (1704)
Family worship is presently one of the most powerful weapons in a
Christian parent's arsenal of truth. Read this Puritan sermon and see why!
In time past, when the churches saw the family as "little churches" within
the church, elders saw to it that family worship was practiced daily and
that offenders against this Godly order were censured. Daily family
worship is a monumental blessing on the one hand and a serious sin of
omission, when not practiced, on the other. When family worship is
practised faithfully (and the responsibility for this rests with the head of
the house primarily, and the elders of the church secondarily Ñ through
encouragement, help and discipline of the unfaithful), nations and
generations to come will be greatly influenced to bow humbly before the
Lord Jesus Christ and serve Him alone! For parents, and especially fathers,
this may be one of the most important works you will ever read.

Mathematics: Is God Silent?
This book revolutionizes the prevailing understanding and teaching of
math. It will serve as solid refutation against the claim, often made in
court, that mathematics is one subject which cannot be taught from a
distinctively Biblical perspective. The addition of this book is a must for all
upper-level Christian school curricula and for college students and adults
interested in math or related fields of science and religion.

All the Way Home: Power for your Family to Be Its Best
All the way home is the long-awaited sequel to Mary Pride's revolutionary
book, The Way Home... The author deals with home education, family wor-
ship, time management, and family work and play. Gregg Harris calls it "a
superb book! Timely. Right on target."
The Way Home: Beyond Feminism, Back to Reality
Mary Pride's book is a source of inspiration and encouragement for every
married Christian woman who wants to discover the biblical freedom in-
tended for her life... Before she ... became a Christian in 1977, Mrs. Pride
had been active as a radical feminist. From her experience as an insider,
she shares a clear assessment of the shortcomings of feminism, and
emphasizes the need to develop a new vision of Christian womanhood
which is deeply rooted in biblical truth (back cover).
Family Worship: Biblical Basis, Historical Reality, Current Need
A splendid contemporary examination, full of encouragement and help in
regard to this sacred duty of daily family worship. Covers God's covenants
with families, looks at house churches in history, the Reformation period,
American history, causes for decline in family worship, etc. Explains, in
easy to understand terms, not only the great spiritual benefits of family
worship, but how to begin, how often it should be done, and what you
should do Ñ according to Scripture. Regarding the sacred stewardship
parents have been given by God, over their children's lives, family worship
and Christian education are basic to covenantal faithfulness to Christ. This
is one of the most important books published on the family in some time.
Priced as low as possible, with the hope of widest possible distribution; it is
well laid out, easy to read and suitable for group or individual study.
Parents, teachers and Pastors, please don't miss this one!

Withhold Not Correction
The title is taken from Proverbs 28:13. It is this biblical command that the
author of this straightforward book holds up as a guide for all parents who
experience doubt and indecision in their roles as disciplinarians. The
author, a father and pastor, also exposes the emptiness of much
contemporary advice on child-rearing. Each chapter contains review and
response question making it an ideal tool for either group study or per-
sonal development. Jay Adams wrote the forward.
WAGNER, MICHAEL G.
Private Versus Public Education: The Alberta Debate (1995)
Though focusing on Alberta, the principles dealt with in this book can be
applied throughout Canada, and in any other nation where home/private
education is taking place. Describes the historical background and major
episodes in this debate and then assesses the three major arguments made
against private schools (and homeschoolers by implication). Concludes by
showing the superiority of private education and exposing the self serving
nature of the public educator's agenda. This is Wagner's Master's Thesis.

Shorter Catechism with Scripture Proofs
Catechisms have been greatly employed in the Church since the days of the
Apostles. A great revival of their use took place at the Reformation. None
rivals the Westminster Assembly's Shorter Catechism, for extensive use,
succinctness, or clarity. Richard Baxter said of it in his day, "It is the best
Catechism I ever saw Ñ a most excellent sum of the Christian faith and
doctrine, and a fit test to try the orthodoxy of its teachers." Excellent for
training youth, it has been used with profit starting as early as three years
(Booklet, $1.95 - 50% = .98)
The Westminster Confession of Faith
"The product of Puritan conflict," stated Shedd, reaching "a perfection of
statement never elsewhere achieved." "May be safely termed the most
perfect statement of Systematic Theology ever framed by the Christian
Church," writes Hetherington in The History of the Westminster Assembly
of Divines (p. 345, emphasis added). The WCF is the greatest of all the
creeds of the Christian church. It represents Reformed thinking at its
purest and best. This is the definitive edition of the WCF and its many
related documents. It contains Manton's "Epistle to the Reader," the Larger
Catechism, Shorter Catechism, "The Sum of Saving Knowledge," "The
National Covenant (1638)," "The Solemn League and Covenant (1643),"
"Acknowledgment of Publick Sins and Breaches of the Covenant (1648),"
"The Directory for the Publick Worship of God (1645)," The Form of
Presbyterial Church Government (1645)," "The Directory for Family
Worship (1647)," an extensive index and more! Next to the Bible itself, no
other book can furnish you with as much necessary spiritual information.

The Two Sons of Oil; or, the Faithful Witness for Magistracy and Ministry
upon a Scriptural Basis
This book explains how to tell if a government (especially a civil
government) is faithful to Christ and thus to be obeyed for conscience's
sake. It also gives direction regarding when and how to resist (and
disassociate) yourself from governments which get their power from "the
beast." Should be very helpful for homeschoolers regarding the
discernment needed to deal with the present "authorities" in civil
