Being a Witness for Christ

"The Greek word for witness is 'martus,' where the English word 'martyr' comes from. Death doesn't make martyrs, it only reveals them. A true witness dies to themselves that they may live to express Christ."
-- Charles Price

This review is from: The Stakes are High (Perfect Paperback)
The Stakes are High
God's Wisdom for Our Public Schools
by Dennis R. Ray, M.Ed.

Contemplating pulling your kids out of the public school system? Then this is a book that you'll want to read. Dennis R. Ray is very familiar with public education, he was a teacher for thirty years and loved what he did.

In his book he identifies a series of key components that make up the educational system. Dennis believes that something is missing in our educational system and he explains in the book what that is.

The author makes several important points regarding the responsibilities facing students, parents and teachers today. And, in spite of the flaws in our public school system, Dennis firmly believes that it is our responsibility as Christians to reach out and make a difference.

Incorporating God's wisdom back into the schools is his goal, is it possible? Dennis Ray seems to believe that one person can make a difference one child at a time, one parent, and one teacher at a time.

The stakes are high and a good education is vital. We've got plenty of teachers that are well educated and have the ability to do an incredible job. Should we abandon ship,tossing the baby out with the bath water? Our students deserve to have the best education possible.

You may have the option to pull your child out of the public school system but whom are you leaving behind. Not all children will have the benefit of attending a private school; you may be the only link to biblical principles that those children and teachers see. A strong Christian foundation and Godly wisdom could be the tools needed to pull our educational system around.

This book would be an excellent resource for those parents and grandparents who are concerned about their child's education. It provides a Christian perspective and offers up a challenge to parents and students.
