"Whatever else your education is, it needs to begin and end with God." You'll find this quote at the end of chapter 8, but I could not resist putting it first. It so clearly expresses the attitude of the authors.

EHO's own Teri Brown, along with Elissa Wahl, has just presented the homeschooling world with a book that answers, once and for all, the question, "Just how can a Christian unschool?" The answer you will find in these pages is, "Very well, actually!"

The book is divided into three parts. First comes the nuts and bolts section, where you will discover answers to most of your questions about what it means and how one would go about doing this thing called unschooling. Chapter titles include...
  • What is Unschooling?
  • Why Unschooling?
  • Getting Started
  • Children and Choices
  • The Worth of a Day
  • A Round-Up of Ideas
  • Teaching Versus Facilitating
  • Learning to Lean on Spirit
  • Records and Record Keeping
Whether you are considering unschooling or merely want to understand unschoolers, these chapters will prove invaluable. If you feel the Spirit nudging you to take the unschooling route, they really WILL prove invaluable!

Brown and Wahl share from experience and do it in such a way that understanding comes easily. The soon-to-be unschooler will complete part one and read on into part two's essays confident that it really isn't unchristian to unschool and she is more than capable of doing it herself.

Part two consists of essays written by Christians who unschool. Each of these essays affords a glimpse into the homes and hearts of a special group of people - a collection of families who were not afraid to share their stories though they had to be well aware they would face criticism from fellow Christians. As one essayist said, "It seems that 'Christian' and 'unschooling' are terms that are not permitted to be used together." Within the ranks of these Christian unschoolers you will find as wide a variety of faces as you will anywhere else in the world. Their essay topics are not quite so wide. They specifically address such things as...
  • Why We Unschool
  • A Day in Our Life
  • Lessons and Learning
  • Guided by The Lord
The book's final chapters offer information and suggestions covering support groups, internet websites, and a variety of other resources. These chapters fill in the last of the blanks, letting you close the book with a great many questions answered and numerous resources for finding answers to those that remain. I am grateful to Brown, Wahl and Champion Press for bringing us such a timely book?one I trust will tear down some walls of misunderstanding while bringing much help to those who need it.
