Teaching History From a Christian Perspective (Didn’t it All Just Happen One Way?)
June 14 @ 3:45 pm - 4:45 pm
Home educating Christian communities have long known there is great value and spiritual benefit to reading about, and even re-enacting history—all while the secular world has tried so hard to distort the historical truth (or at least downplay its importance). But did you know that Christian historians do quite a bit of arguing amongst themselves? Or have you ever had a disagreement among Christians about exactly what happened? These kind of debates, far from being meaningless, are part of the challenge and excitement of being a Christian historian. Dr. Favelo will unpack the differences between the Providentialist school and the academic Christian historical school, and will present the unique, fun opportunities these discussions can provide for your family.
