Recommended Reading

We have compiled several recommended reading resources for educators and principals in Christian Education for personal growth and development in various fields such as Strategic Planning, Christian Teaching and Biblical Integration. We encourage schools to share their insights and recommended books with us.

The Digital Dilemma

Recently there has been increasing concern around the compulsive and excessive use of digital devices through the abuse of social media, online video gaming, online pornography and associated risks and harms. The book thoroughly discusses the tremendous importance of understanding the negative effects of the Internet, smartphone use, and other new digital technologies on especially spiritual- and emotional well-being. Besides its widely recognized addictive nature, it has also become clear that such technology inevitably alters our social and emotional intelligence and impedes our ability to effectively engage with each other in a personal manner. Consequently, this has the potential to degrade our moral fibre and inevitably harm entire societies. Emphasis was placed on emotional, physiological, and spiritual harm, induced by digital abuse, ranging from activities that at first seem innocent, to vile perversions and abominations that eventually can be fatal. The authors present statistically and academically driven arguments as to why the study of technological (over) use and its consequences is of tremendous importance. Finally, the book will also provide ideas and solutions on how to manage the use of these technologies safely and wisely in order to experience a more satisfying, productive and happier life. The book can be used as a resource for parents, educators, counsellors and academic scholars in the rehabilitation and healing process from the consequences of digital addiction. It utilizes a unique and revolutionary approach in addressing these problems from a trifold perspective of soul, body and spirit.

What is God’s eternal plan for education?

Educating for Eternity is meant as a guide for Christian teachers and prospective Christian teachers towards the realisation that education is a powerful instrument in fulfilling God’s divine plan for the ages. Acquiring a basic understanding of God’s plan as revealed in Scripture will challenge them to discover, and hopefully to accept, their part in God’s redemptive plan. In the first part of the book an outline of the contours of God’s eternal plan is presented. God Himself has written the play and revealed it to us. By His grace we have the privilege to play a part in the production of God’s play. Christian teachers should disclose this plan to the learners through their lives and teachings.

Determine your Destiny

Psalm 139:16 Your eyes saw my substance being yet unformed, and in your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me.

Did you know that God wrote a book about your life, before you were even born? Did you know that He will open our books when we stand before His throne one day? Revelation 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened which was the Book of Life. Verse 13b And they were judged, each one according to his works. Did you know we will be judged for what we were called to do? Do you know what is written in your book? Are you living according to what is written in your book?.
In Determine your Destiny, you will learn how to determine God’s will for your life, and how to live in God’s perfect plan, determining and fulfilling your destiny, so that when you stand before God, and your book is opened, you will hear: “Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy o the Lord.” Matthew 25: 21.

Begin By Die Grondslag by Stephen Kaufmann

Die tyd is ryp vir onderwysers in Christelike skole om die sekulere gees, wat in die Westerse kultuur heers, te konfronteer met 'n boodskap gebaseer op die evangelie en gefokus op Christus. Die hart en verstand van elke skolier in ons skole wat God in ons sorg geplaas het, is hier op die spel. Is onderwysers gereed om aan skoliere 'n nuwe manier te bied om hulleself te sien as Christus se agente wat aan Hom behoort in plaas van agente vansekularisme? Sal ons skole plekke wees wat leerders sover kry om God se beeld uit te straal in alles wat hulle doen en leer, en om nie bloot me inligting gevul te word nie? Hierdie boekie het dit ten doel om onderwysers toe te rus om hulle roeping te aanvaar om nie net Christene te wees nie, maar ook om as Christene aan hulle leerlinge onderrig te gee.

Undivided: Developing a Worldview Approach to Biblical Integration

Too often, teachers feel ill-equipped to present a compelling, integrated biblical worldview. In Undivided: Developing a Worldview Approach to Biblical Integration, Dr Martha E. MacCullough identifies the prominent worldviews in our culture and presents a model for biblical integration that fosters worldview thinking in teachers and students and can be used even by teachers with no formal biblical training. Students today are surrounded by competing and contradictory worldviews. They look to their teachers for guidance, but too often, teachers feel ill-equipped to present a compelling and integrated biblical worldview leaving students with splintered perspectives that separate secular from sacred. Through strategic curriculum design and committed biblical study, teachers at any level, kindergarten through college, can develop wholehearted students who think and act out of a biblical worldview in life and learning.
