Horton, Ronald, ed. Christian Education: Its Mandate and Mission BJU Press, 1992.

The premises of Christian education are sincerely held and self-consistent, for they are convictions based on the facts and principles of Scripture. Rooted in the infallible, supernaturally revealed truth of God.

The philosophy statements in this series are concise statements of the biblical basis for Christian education generally and for individual disciplines specifically. The series includes the foundational statements—The Christian Philosophy of Education, Christian Teaching and Learning, Christian Educational Methods—and the specialized statements on the Christian teaching of art, Bible, business, English, history, home economics, math, music, physical education, science, and speech. These statements are conveniently gathered into one volume, Christian Education: Its Mandate and Mission.
