Vision Forum Giveaway

My sister-in-law, Laura, is hosting a giveaway on her blog. It's for a choice between two products from Vision Forum. Be sure to go enter and post about a product you'd be interested in reading from VF. I did some browsing tonight, and considering I'm realizing that in 2-3 short years, my oldest will be "school-age", I'd like to read "When you Rise Up: A Covenantal Approach to Homeschooling". I've never read a book in-favor of homeschooling, so I think this is a must-read for me!
From the VF website:
One of the up-and-coming heroes of the home-school movement in America is R.C. Sproul, Jr., whose practical, family-centered vision for discipleship is as fresh as it is rooted in historical, biblical Christianity. When it comes to education, R.C. doesn’t hesitate in dealing with the real issues. Who should teach our children? What should they be taught? What teaching methods should be employed? In this powerful primer on child training, R.C. cuts through the haze surrounding the educational debate by offering a biblical approach that is elegantly simple without being simplistic. Not everyone will love this book. Christians who embrace an education methodology of neutrality will either squirm with discomfort or convert. R.C. clearly and emphatically makes the case for parents as God’s chosen teachers. He writes with verve, with heart, with transparency, and with humility. He systematically goes through all of the typical objections raised against home schooling and provides meaningful and definitive answers. On the other hand, parents who, with humility before the Lord, are seeking His best for their families will be deeply touched and motivated by this simple, biblical message of covenantal home education.

That does look like a good book. I may have to check it out!

I have that book, but I haven't read it yet. So many books and so little time. :)
